It has been the good fortune of the 1914 CORNHUSK- ER to be able to perform the office, not only of keeping this pleasant year of college life green in the memory, but of opening the gate- w ay looking toward this, the NEW NEBRASKA UNIVERSITY, that seems now so possible, at least, of actual attainment.

CornhiiBlsri, 1014 EDITOR ' S NOTE.— The passing of " House Roll 345 " by the Nebraska legislature in the spring of 1913, after a strenuous debate in both houses, made the new University of Nebraska a political and financial possibility. The question of locating the future University was, however, too strenuous a task for that deliberative body, and being unable to reach a satisfactory conclusion, they left that important decision to their con- stituents. TlWhether the funds accruing from the special one-half mill levy are to be expended in erecting buildings on an expanded city campus or upon the present farm site is the question confronting the voters of the state at the next regular election. In the following series of articles the Cornhusker presents with absolute impartiality the two alternatives, showing with the utmost accuracy and clearness exactly what build- ings are planned to be erected and which of the present buildings will be left standing in the new University campus according to the various plans of future development. Citp Campug Cxtens ion " S te- HE PLANS for University ■ Expansion were designed to fit two situations. One set shows how the buildings will appear and be arranged in case the people of the state decide that the University shall stay on the city campus and on land contiguous to it. The other set shows the University as it will appear if the people decide that all the colleges, with the exception of the College of Medi- cine, shall be consolidated at the State Farm. Each set is quite thorough and detailed, as the etchings show, and a description of them must follow the various features systematically. THE TWO DESIGNS COMPARED. Of the extension plan there are two layouts. Both layouts contemplate a campus twelve blocks in area extend- ing from R Street to U Street and from Tenth Street to Fourteenth Street. Both plans also contemplate essentially the same amount of floor space ; al- though the first layout of the extension plan distributes the room among thirty buildings, while the second layout shows the same amount of room dis- tributed among twenty-three larger buildings. In the first layout the main entrance to the campus is Twelfth Street, which remains an open drive- way as far as S Street and then ex- tends as a large open court a half a block on the east and west side re- spectively of Twelfth Street, as shown in the accompanying diagram. In the second layout the campus is bisected by Twelfth Street running all the way through to U Street. On the east half of the campus thus formed there is also an open court in the shape of the letter " T, " extending eastward from the junc- tion of Twelfth and S in front of the present Armory to Thirteenth Street and extending a half block north and south respectively on Thirteenth. From this general description of the two drafts of the extension plan it will be seen that the second layout differs from the first in three main particu- lars : it contemplates fewer and larger buildings than the first ; it plans a di- vision of the campus by Twelfth Street, and it shows a " T " shaped court lo- cated, not in the center of the entire campus, but in the center of the east half only.

One advantage of the extension plan, much dwelt upon by supporters of the extension side of the University loca- tion question, is the fact that most of the present buildings of the city campus can be retained. The fact that many of our present buildings under the extension plan can be retained in about their present location will be brought out in the immediately forth- coming description of where each of the thirty buildings contemplated by the first layout is going to stand. As heretofore noted, the campus, un- der the first layout, is a solid rectangle, four blocks from east to west by three blocks from north to south. Beginning at the southwest corner of the rect- angle and going east along R Street are shown the present law building, the forthcoming building for the geo- graphical and geological sciences, the science laboratories, the driveway to the central court, the hall of economics and political science, the fine arts building and the hall of modern lan- guages. Beginning again at the west side of the campus, and going east just north of the buildings located above, are found the electrical engineering and physics laboratories, the first a new building and the second the present physical laboratory; the mathematics building, the central driveway, the his- tory building, the administration build- ing of the college of arts and sciences and domestic science hall. North of the last two buildings named, and east of the central court, above described, are the library and woman ' s building; while west of the central court and north of the electrical engineering and mathematics buildings are situated an administration building and the pres- ent mechanical engineering building. North of the administration building and the central court, going from west to east, is the following tier of struc- tures: sanitary engineering, mechanic arts, museum, journalism, biological of- fices and education. In its present lo- cation will remain the athletic field expanded a half a block to the east- ward. On the west side of the athletic field will be a long structure devoted to shops and storage, and east of the ath- letic field will be the armory and gym- nasium. Across a small court east of the armory will be the botany building and east of that, across a somewhat larger court, will be housed the depart- ment of philosophy. Beginning at the northeast corner of the athletic field and going east along U Street, are shown the four remaining buildings of the layout : men ' s club house, zoology, physiology and a teachers ' college high school. From this description of the first layout it will be seen that the buildings which will remain unaltered are the law building, the physics build- ing, the mechanical engineering build- ing and the mechanic arts building. THE SECOND LAYOUT. TWO CAMPUSES -THE FIRST CAMPUS. The second layout seems bolder and more pretentious in appearance. The buildings are fewer, larger and farther apart. The campus is bisected by Twelfth Street and the principal drive- way and central court are located in the east half of the campus. The main open spaces under the second layout are two: the athletic field in its present location and the central court occu- pying Thirteenth Street and a half a block on both sides of S Street. The rest of the campus is conveniently oc- cupied by buildings. On the west half of the campus will be found the en- larged chemistry building in the same location as the present structure. The classics will be housed in a new build- ing shown on the layout as occupying CornijMSifecr, 1914 Expanded City Campus 5iJ33Esr w ir " flac J ' V VOi The Second Layout The " Twin Campus " Plan " yxii (tornfniflihrr. 1014 the position now held by the admin- istration building, while to the north of the hall of the classics will be a large college of science structure and north of that a mathematics building. The following buildings are shown as situated where they now stand : the li- brary, the law building, the physics building (to which is adjoined a wing for electrical engineering), and the me- chanical engineering building. Facing T Street east of the mechanical engineer- ing laboratory are exhibited an archi- tectural and mechanical arts group of three buildings. South of this group be- tween the present location of Nebraska Hall and the chemistry building there is shown a new engineering building flanked on the east by a new admin- istration building. This plan, it will be noticed, involves the abandonment of the power house, the shops, Nebraska hall, the museum and the armory. All other buildings are shown to be situ- ated as described above. THE SECOND OR EAST CAMPUS. The east half of the campus, lying between Twelfth and Fourteenth Streets and R and U Streets, will, of course, be built up anew. As already stated, there is in the center of the plans for this half of the campus a large " T " shaped court which it is con- templated will be profusely adorned with fountains, herbs, grasses and flower beds. Between S and R on Twelfth Street is shown a modern lan- guage building. Facing R Street be- tween Twelfth and Thirteenth there would be erected, according to the sec- ond layout, a large and imposing museum and hall of fine arts. Facing Fourteenth Street, the eastern extrem- ity of the campus, and going north from R to U Streets are plotted the woman ' s building, the domestic science hall, the library, the history building, the economics building and the school of education. Adjoining U Street the plans show a building to be occupied as a teachers ' college high school with another building to the west, to be the zoological laboratory. The remain- ing structures, located in the east half of the second campus layout, are the political science and philosophy build- ings situated south of the zoology building and north of the " T " shaped court. The exact position of each of these buildings and their size may be pic- tured to one ' s self by the aid of the accompanying cuts. It only remains to be said of the second layout of the extension plan that it contemplates the abandonment of fewer of the buildings now existing than does the first layout. Consiolibation at tfje tate Jfarm XF THE people of the state at the next election decide that the colleges of the city campus should be consolidated with the Col- lege of Agriculture on the State Farm it means that the entire University with the exception of the College of Medi- cine, located in Omaha, will be found in the future at the State Farm. The plans for the consolidated campus, like those for the city campus extension, embrace two layouts : one showing a rectangular arrangement of the build- ings and the other showing a diagonal arrangement of the buildings. The size of the campus to be occupied by the entire University under the con- solidation plan is nine blocks east and west by seven blocks north and south, or an area of sixty-three square blocks Cornijusifecr, 1914 Consolidated on the State Farm Site III I 1 g POi Ha J ci ■ .r « C o|g dva ' j « ' 3 c|dl|cii, j a J Q ■; Laaiixs aicc The First Layout The Oval Court Cornljiighrr. U»14 in all. When all the structures shown on both layouts are erected there will not be mi ' ch land remaining for pas- ture and crops — a fact which has been greatly dwelt upon by some of the op- ponents of removal who believe that the state needs all the land now avail- able at the Farm for the purpose of experiments in agriculture. FIRST LAYOUT— THE OVAL COURT. The first layout of the extension plan shows six open spaces. The first is a large driveway extending from the present main entrance on Holdrege Street to a large open court, the sec- ond principal space, approximately two blocks in area, oval in shape and lo- cated about where the northermost grove of trees now stands. To the central court another broad and stately driveway is planned to extend from Thirty-third Street west of the Farm. A third passage-way cuts off the south one-third of the proposed consolidated campus by extending from Thirty-third Street east between the present agri- cultural hall and home economics building to the east end of the campus. At this point it intersects a second highway from Holdrege Street north to the northeast corner of the rectangle, where it turns diagonally northwest between five proposed dormitories for men. The remaining open space of the rectangular layout is the athletic field, shown on the plans as somewhat larger than our present gridiron and located in the north and east part of the rectangle. The center of all driveways, as well as the open court, by which college cam- puses are everywhere known and dis- tinguished, will be planted with grasses, shrubs and trees and the best creations of the landscape gardener. In number, size and distribution the buildings of the proposed consolidated campus will differ widely from the present grounds of the agricultural de- partments. Only four out of the fifteen of the buildings now on the campus are shown on both layouts of the consoli- dation plan: Agricultural hall, home economics building, plant industry building and the experiment station. Instead of the fifteen principal build- ings now on the Farm there are shown in the first layout forty-seven. In gen- eral these forty-seven structures will be somewhat larger and much closer to- gether than the present fifteen. So much different from the present cam- pus of the agricultural college will the proposed consolidated campus appear that the means for visualizing a com- parison are meagre. GROUPING OF BUILDINGS. Both layouts of the consolidation plan show the buildings arranged in groups. The University architects seem to have considered it more appro- priate to group together buildings of the same colleges and buildings of kin- dred courses of study. Entering the campus from the main Holdrege Street entrance — the same as the present en- trance — the first group seen by a vis- itor may be called the classical group. It occupies the southwest corner of the rectangle and contains the following buildings: a library and administration building fronting the entrance drive- way; a hall of the classics, west of the library and administration building; a hall of modern languages, northwest of the library and administration building, and a hall of mathematics northeast of the library and administration build- ing. Continuing northwest of the classical group is shown a woman ' s group em- bracing a domestic science building, a woman ' s gymnasium and five wom- an ' s dormitories. Looking east from the woman ' s dormitories the visitor Cornfjusifecr, 1914 will see a college of arts and literature group of four buildings with a history building, a political science building and economics building, and the build- ing for the school of commerce, each occupying a corner of a rectangle. East of the arts and literature group and across the main entrance driveway ex- tending north from Holdrege Street is the group shown on the plans as the college of science. It embraces a physics building with a physics lab- oratory east of it and a companion structure for chemistry north of the physics building with a chemistry lab- oratory east of it. Thus the college of arts and literature and the college of sciences are both rectangular groups of four buildings each. North of the literary and scientific groups is the oval court which will have the appearance of a miniature park. Looking west from the oval court are two rows of three buildings each, the first row to be occupied by the philosophy courses, and the second row by the works in education. Look- ing northwest from the oval court is a long structure shown on the plans as a teachers ' college high school. On the east and north the oval court is flanked by what might be called a fine arts group, and a visitor walking from the east to the north end of the court would pass the buildings of geology, fine arts, music and museum with an audito- rium in the rear. This combined museum and auditorium, after the com- bined library and administration build- ing, is the largest building on the first layout of the proposed consolidated campus and is situated at the northern terminus of the entrance driveway from Holdrege Street north, thus command- ing a full view of the rear of the library and administration building. Returning along the main entrance driveway from Holdrege Street to the classical group and starting eastward along the street which passes through the campus from east to west in the rear of the library and administration building, the visitor finds on his right the engineering group and on his left the biological group. Of the engineer- ing group, facing Holdrege Street, is the observatory and the shops, while north of these, in a line from west to east, are the following buildings: Archi- tecture, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and laboratories. On the north side of the east and west driveway along which he is walking east the visitor will see the building of the biological group — physiology, zoology and bot- any in order. Of the remaining groups the college of agriculture is located in the north- east corner of the rectangle formed by the buildings of the first layout. The buildings of this group are located on the east and west side of a second or east driveway running north from Hol- drege Street driveway from that street. Going north along this passage-way are found on the west side of the road the horticultural building, the agron- omy building, the animal husbandry building and the veterinary science building. On the east side of the drive- way going north the visitor sees in or- der the horse barn, the sheep barn, the administration building and judging pavillion and the dairy. None of the buildings now occupied and used by the college of agriculture will be used and occupied by the college of agri- culture if University removal carries, and the first layout of the consolidation plan prevails. The college of agri- culture will be built anew. West of the agricultural cluster and east of the fine arts buildings is a men ' s group. It consists of an armory and gymnasium directly north of the zoo- CornfiiifiJirr. 1014 Consolidated on the State Farm Site Q- rj o rr O ' f - C V- ' £i -•?■ n - • The Second or " Diagonal Layout " Cornfiugfecr, 1914 logy building, an athletic field, hereto- fore mentioned and located, directly north of the armory and gymnasium, and five proposed dormitories for men located across considerable open space to the northeast of the athletic field. The dormitories are more or less set apart from the rest of the campus and form a distinct promontory to the rect- angle. This completes a fairly detailed ex- position of the first or rectangular lay- out of the consolidated campus plan. It should be borne in mind before passing to the description of the sec- ond or diagonal layout that a good many of the buildings and a good many of the improvements found on the plans and designated and described in this explanation may never come into existence. This description is only an analysis of the appearance of the first layout of the consolidation plan and is in no sense a prediction as to how the University of the future is going to look. If University removal does not carry, or if it does carry and some other plan, design or arrangement is adopted, then this description most certainly will not be of any educational or political interest. The point finally to be emphasized by anyone undertak- ing to describe these plans is that such a description purports only to explain the plans, and does not in any way indulge a suggestion as to how Uni- versity buildings will appear when the program of expansion is set in motion. THE SECOND LAYOUT. The second layout of the consoli- dated campus has the same dimensions and boundaries as the first. The main differences between the layouts are in the arrangement, groujiing and use of the buildings. While the size and shape of the several buildings of the two layouts arc not the same there is distributed through the forty-six build- ings of the second layout as much floor space as there is in the forty-seven buildings of the first layout. In a word, the distinction between the two de- signs is of architectural significance merely. The open spaces of the second or di- agonal layout are five in number. As in the first design, a driveway enters from Thirty-third Street east to a cen- tral court. There are also, as in the first layout, two entrance driveways from Holdrege Street north through the campus, the westerly or main en- trance driveway corresponding in loca- tion to the road that now passes be- tween agricultural hall and the experiment station. This driveway ex- tends to a large open court, the same as shown in the first layout, but rect- angular instead of oval shape. Extend- ing east from the library auditorium building, fronting the main Holdrep.e Street entrance driveway, is a third driveway dividing the shops from the buildings of the engineering and sci- entific colleges. Intersecting this road is the second or eastern Holdrege Street entrance driveway, which pio- ceeds diagonally from the intersection northwest to the central court and sep- arates the biological from the engineer- ing and scientific groujj of buildings. So conspicuous is this diagonal pass- age-way, with four imposing buildings lining each side, that the second lay- out is commonly identified as the di- agonal design. The arrangement of the buildings in the second or diagonal layout is also by groups. The groups of the second layout are not, however, the same as tiiose of the first. They include more buildings or fewer buildings as the case may be. Tiiey include different buildings and their relative position on the camjius is not the same as in the first layout. 20 ConiliiiSUrr. 1014 The first group, for instance, consists of one large building — the library audi- torium — fronting the main entrance driveway from Holdrege Street north. The combination of the library with the auditorium is a feature that meets with some opposition on the part of those who think the library should be quiet and hence isolated. The college of arts group, north- west of the library auditorium and west of the main central driveway from Holdrege Street, has six main build- ings. Going north along this drive- way a visitor passes the buildings of history, economics, English and mod- ern languages. North of the history building is the hall of political science, and west of the modern language build- ing is the hall of the classics. The open space between the buildings of this group is a floral court. West of the arts group is a woman ' s group. Due west of the political sci- ence building is a domestic science hall, north of that a woman ' s gym- nasium, and west of that two dormi- tories for women. The plan shows the dormitories as possible, not immedi- ately probable, structures. Northwest of the woman ' s group is a fine arts group of three buildings standing in a west-to-east row and con- sisting of music, fine arts and journal- ism halls. North of the fine arts row are the buildings of the educational group, with the teachers ' college high school due north of the fine arts build- ing and the hall of education east of the teachers " college high school. To the northeast of the education building is a building for the use of the philoso- phy department with five future dor- mitories for men shown as standing apart to the north and west. North of the rectangular central court, fronting the main entrance drive- way from Holdrege Street north, is a large building, comparable in size to the library auditorium building and oc- cupied by the men ' s club, armory and gymnasium. East and west of this structure are two buildings, uniform in size and shape, both shown to be occu- pied by the University museum collec- tions. North of the men ' s club-armory- gymnasium building is plotted the ath- letic field, completely surrounded by open country and a distinct promontory to the college groups. The architects in all the designs have consistently put the armory and gymnasium in the same group with the athletic field, and with the same group is usually shown in dim lines future dormitories for men. East of the rectangular central court are the law and administration build- ings, both smaller and loss imposing, and in less conspicuous places than they are shown by other designs. Going southeast from the central court along the diagonal driveway to the second or east Holdrege Street en- trance to the campus, the visitor sees to the northeast of the diagonal road the buildings of the biological group and to the southwest the laboratories of the engineering group. Among the biological buildings he passes in order the homes of physiology, biological administration, zoology and botany. Southwest of the diagonal road he passes in order the three following buildings, all in the hypotenuse of the engineering and scientific triangle : General laboratory, electrical engineer- ing building and a second general lab- oratory. Going west along the driveway ex- tending east from the library-audito- rium building the visitor passes a long line of shops to the south of him fac- ing Holdrege Street. On his right, north of the driveway, are located in order the mechanical, sanitary and civil engineering buildings. The third side Cornftusfeer, 1914 21 of the engineering and scientific tri- angle lies east of the main entrance driveway extending from Holdrege Street north to the central court. Go- ing north along this road one sees to the east of him in order the archi- tecture, geology, physics, chemistry and general engineering buildings. The final group consists of the seven buildings shown on the plans as in- tended for the use of the college of agriculture. This group is located east of the second or east Holdrege Street entrance driveway and the buildings stand north and south of the driveway entering east from the library-audito- rium building. South of the driveway the visitor going east sees in order the judging pavillion and the animal hus- bandry building. North of the drive- way he passes in order the agronomy building, the administration building, the veterinary science building and the horse barn. In conclusion it might seem that the grouping in the second or diagonal lay- out is more distinct and logical than in the first or rectangular layout. It would appear that a person, traveling through the campus and seeing one group and one building after another, would re- tain a belter mental picture of the di- agonal campus than the rectangular campus. The rectangular layout, on the other hand, would seem to give a more fixed impression of the campus as a whole and add to its attractiveness as a large group of institutional buildings. The architectural advantages and dis- advantages of a consolidated campus following each layout are thus about the same. Finally, it should be remembered that the above exposition describes only the plans and utters no prophesies or predictions as to how the future expanded University will appear. 22 CoinlHiskn . 1014 Slouge laoll 345 HE QUESTION of what to do ■ jwith the State University was the most perplexing problem which faced the Legislature of 1913. The issue came to them as a legacy from the previous session, where little had been done toward its solution. The schools of thought were well repre- sented in the messages of the outgoing and incoming governors. The former advised removal, while the latter fav- ored expansion on the present campus. The bill around which most of the debate was centered and which was finally passed was House Roll No. 345. It was introduced by four members jointly and provided for extension on land adjacent to the present campus. January 24th is the date of its first ap- pearance. After second reading the bill was referred to the Committee on Univer- sity and Normal Schools, and consid- ered by them until about the middle of February. At that time they reported that they favored placing it on general file, but with a very important amend- ment. This amendment came in re- sponse to an offer by Lincoln, and provided that the city of Lincoln should pay all over $200 necessary to purchase the real estate necessary to extension on a city campus, and that the state should assign to the city of Lincoln all income from property until that property should be used in the process of expansion. The House passed the bill, with the exception of this amendment. It was no doubt their wish to keep the school free from any interests not vested in all the people alike. But in the Senate the bill received a new trimming. That body, consist- ently pro-removal from the beginning, de clared their willingness to create the fund, but insisted that it be used in building the University on the State Farm. This idea it incorporated in its amendments. Thus the bill which left the House a bill for University Exten- sion, came back a bill for University Removal. About this time in the session some member moved that since the Legis- lature was in deadlock on the question it be submitted to the people at the next regular election. The House very wisely voted this down. Their action shows a desire to solve the question, and not a tendency to shift responsibil- ity at the first opportunity. No sooner was the action of the Senate reported back to the House than they voted not to concur in the Senate amendments. But a committee was appointed to confer with a similar committee from the Senate and submit amendments to which both bodies could agree. On the last day of the ses- sion, when no other solution was possi- ble, the committee agreed that the problem should be submitted to the people, and their action was endorsed by both houses. The provisions of the bill as it now exists as a law are for the creation of a fund for the University of Nebraska. This fund is to be known as the " Spe- cial University Building Fund " and is made up of the proceeds of a tax of three-fourths of a mill on the grand assessment roll of the state. This tax is to run for six years, beginning with 1913 and ending with 1918. No pro- ceeds of this tax shall be expended " until the electors of said state have had an opportunity under the initiative to express their choice as to the future site of the colleges of said University. " The question is submitted to the peo- ple under the following ballot : " Shall all the colleges of the State University, excepting the College of Cornijuaifeer, 1914 23 Medicine, be consolidated as soon as practicable on the farm campus, " or " Shall the colleges of the State Uni- versity, excepting the College of Agri- culture and the College of Medicine, be housed in buildings located, or to be located, on the present city campus and on land contiguous thereto. " There is a section of our state con- stitution which provides that if a ma- jority of those voting on a proposition submitted under the initiative shall favor its adoption, providing such ma- jority shall constitute 35 per cent of the number voting at said election. What effect this provision will have on university removal, in case the re- quired per cent do not vote one way, is unknown. But the law does not re- quire that the people express their choice. It merely provides that they shall be given the opportunity to do so. There is nothing, therefore, to prevent the next Legislature ' s appropriating the money as they see fit, if the people do not decide. And unless the election is very close the Legislature would probably decide the way the majority voted, whether that majority be the re- quired 35 per cent or not. Nebraskans are assured, therefore, of a wonderful growth of the State University in the near future. It will not be material which way the people vote as far as the amount spent is con- cerned. Whether in the country or in the city, the one promise of the future is — a greater and more splendid uni- versity — the " New Nebraska. " A 1 ■ " ' i l .

" Oth- ers are crowding into line to interview professor or advisor. Still others are waiting to pay their fees and breathe that sigh of relief which marks the completion of the process. Some are gathered in small groups discussing their summer ' s employment and com- paring the schedules of their next semester ' s work. Many of this mass of humanity are here for the first time. It is not diffi- cult to distinguish them from the oth- ers. They are noticed wandering about in a bewildered fashion. In their minds wondering if they will ever feel as much at home in this surrounding as some of those about him seem to feel. The people of the throng in which the freshman finds himself are from many parts of the land. A large num- ber come from Omaha, with its surg- ing, metropolitan society. The idea of four years of life in Lincoln, with its restricted opportunities for action does not appeal to them. Others come from those portions of the state having their towns of a few thousand inhabitants. The excitement of life in the city and work in the school is a change that by them has been anticipated with a great deal of pleasure. Still others come from the far western part of the state and their pilgrimage to the Capital City opens to them a new world. The ideals and motives of the stu- dents are many and varied. Some come to the institution with the inten- tion of doing only enough work to make fraternity, stay in school and concentrate their attentions on the so- cial world. Others choose to crowd into their minds all the learning possi- ble, and attain that dizzy height of scholarship marked by the Phi Beta Kappa key. Some bring with them the outline of a definite career in medicine, law or engineering, which they intend to follow to the letter. There are even those having nothing definite in mind to do, but come to take a general course with the intention of determin- ing after more experience what their life ' s work will be. In ideals, therefore, as well as in geography, the freshmen are repre- sentative of the old society of Nebraska. The outstate freshman is unacquainted with Omaha, and regards the metropo- lis as embodying all evil qualities found in areas of congested population. The student from the city in his turn tends to underestimate and slight the " green " brother from the west. By way of ideals, the society-loving individual cannot see the necessity of loading one ' s mind with useless facts and theories, and the scholarly mind cannot see the attraction of a shallow, hypo- critical society. But what is the effect of our years of life at Nebraska University? Per- chance some serious P. B. K. candidate draws some light " society jane " for a room-mate. As time passes, each comes to share more the view of the other. In fraternities and societies, in activi- ties and politics, in classes and ath- letics, there takes place a commingling of men and ideals which has no parallel in any American institution. The re- sult is a spirit of generous co-operation so necessary to the life of a great com- munity like the state of Nebraska. Thus does the University become a great " melting pot, " a city en minia- ture, adjusting countless irresponsible units to form a great interdependent, co-operative society. Cornljusfeer, 1914 25 IDormitorics in tijc Jlctu ZUmUcrsitp The decline in solidarity and broad personal acquaintance in our student body is a matter of regret to all friends of the University. " Class spirit, " which formerly prompted such fervid demon- strations of Freshman. Sophomore. Ju- nior and Senior loyalty, has faded away with the advance of the free elective system, and now exists mainly in the patter of politicians. Perhaps on ac- count of this decreasing tendency to identify one ' s self with a class has come the lowering of college spirit, which has gone on at nearly the same rate. The undergraduates appear to be be- coming intensely individualistic and self-centered, and more and more unwilling to sacrifice their personal comfort for the interest of the whole student body. People who want to see more school spirit aroused have offered varying plans for the purpose, among these be- ing the single ta.x, whose object is to compel more support of student activi- ties; the all-University 50-cent dance, to promote greater democracy in social affairs: and lately, the student council, which, it is thought, will force under- graduates to assume the responsibility for the management of such matters as afTect the whole student body. Excellent as these devices may be in their way, some of us believe the most effective remedy for our torpidity would be dormitories. At present we live scattered all over the city, and as a recent graduate has said, at the blow- ing of the 5-o ' clock whistle the student body breaks into a thousand fragments. Personal acquaintance, through which alone an esprit de corps can be cITectcd, can be developed on the campus only a little way. The cliques which divide us. 26 Coi-nI)us(l{ft-. 1014 and absorb the loyalty which should belong to the college, are largely the result of a too limited acquaintance; and this limited acquaintance is in a good measure due to nothing more than lack of opportunity for closer associa- tion. A student community life, there- fore, seems to us the best foundation for academic solidarity. In the absence of action by the Uni- versity fathers to provide the needed dormitories for the whole school, the fraternities and other boarding clubs have offered a partial solution of the problem. Unfortunately these organi- zations contain but a minority of the students. A frat house accommodating fifteen to twenty-five undergrads of all classes, situated from two to ten blocks from any other such lodge, gives a very limited opportunity for real dormitory life. Nevertheless, the thirty establish- ments of this kind which have sprung voluntarily into being, are giving a fel- lowship that would be impossible in only independent boarding and room- ing houses. The fraternities as they exist now, in fact, have been practically called into being by the need of board- ing clubs. The communal life, which at present they alone offer, is, perhaps, sufficient justification for their exist- ence at Nebraska. If our University is to serve all the people of the state on equal terms, it must provide quarters where, at a mod- erate cost, as many as desire may live. The dormitory benefits, now confined to fraternities, must be given to all, re- gardless of the peculiar qualifications which make men desirable to the Greeks. When this is done our gradu- ates will have a clearer understanding of the state ' s problems and a greater store of priceless college friendships. We do our best work when we work together, and we work together best when we understand each other. Corntjugber, 1914 27 Jourualisin TT HAT WAS the color of Cleo- 1 I Ipstra ' s hair? How could Omar V M X Khavam as poet sing so witch- ingly of grapes and kisses and yet as astronomer royal keep azimuth and ze- nith unfalteringly separate? What lan- guage did Balaam ' s ass speak? Why did Shakespeare leave his wife only his second best bed? Was Ulysses a nature fakir? These and a thousand equally impertinent, insistent and tantalizing riddles has history left as its heritage. And all because the gentle but per- sistent art of the reporter did not come to full flower until almost within our own time. It is hard to be patient when we think how much the human race has been allowed to forget; all because what was local gossip was not permitted through the transmuting elixir of linotype, printers ' ink and wood pulp to become cosmic gossip. But my common-sense reader, yet with a romantic turn to his imagina- tion, will here interrupt me: Is it not far better that it should be so, that all these lesser details should have been swallowed by hungry forgetfulness? Is it not enough to know that Cleopatra ' s hair, whatever its color, played sad havoc in the Roman Empire? The hand of Omar may have been unsteady as it struck the lute, but the verses were true. Balaam ' s ass may have spoken Bohemian, for all we care, but it did bring about an " entente cordiale " with the peppery old prophet. And Ulysses from his success with the gape- mouthed Phaecians may have hazarded too much on the credulousness of pos- terity, but he told a curious tale inter- larded with much interest. Besides do not all these lapses from our present standards of journalistic garrulity allow a most abundant opportunity to a high aspiring imagination? Are not airy conceits of Cleo])atra better than the real Cleopatra who must have had colds and " tantrums " that jjrobably tried the patience of even Mark An- tony? Who would exchange the Cyc- lops for a common herdsman upon whose possessions the erring Greek laid violent hands, or Scylla for a common- place eddy? And even Shakespeare ' s second-best bed has permitted at least one German critic to point a moral and adorn a tale. Poetry, romance, is an aerophyte: it thrives on a plentiful lack of such solids as are furnished by enter- prising reporters and city editors. Regret it or not regret it, there was very little effort at journalism in the past — and there is not much but jour- nalism in the present. If what philoso- phers say be true that life as a whole is a ceaseless flux of becoming, an ever- treading of fact and incident upon the heels of fact and incident, a variety show with a continuous performance and never a curtain, then it is not diffi- cult to find an explanation for the popularity and the necessity, yes, and even for the perplexity of the modern newspaper. If the living world be but a chaotic, mad, clamorous dance of inci- dent galling the knee of event, a cosmic tango if you please, then that report of life must be truest to life i nto which events, tragic or comic, dull or thrill- ing, pathetic or humorous, saintly or abysmal, are all willy-nilly mingled, without table of contents, index, or er- rata ; and what is this but the ideal of journalism? If life, as the philoso- phers have it. is a cosmic dyspepsia, so also is its nearest record, the newspa- per. And to know life, second-hand, all one need to do is to follow the curious researches of its closest students, the keen-scented reporters. But out of this journalistic melange, which tells of our modern C ' copatras more than the color of their hair, and more of our Balaams ' faithful beasts than that they spoke, and to which the lives of our modern Shakcspcarcs and Ulysses are no mystery even to their slightest details, out of the mod- em newspaper has come more good 28 CornliiisUn. 1014 than the mere satisfaction of our cosmic curiosity. For out of it has come the latest child of our literary tradition, the modern short story and the mod- ern novel. If one excuse were needed to justify the labors of our much re- buffed but secretly much courted re- porters, if we turn with an irritated cui bono from the hecatombs of vicari- ous trash they offer daily to their still unappeased goddess, the excuse or the answer is not far to seek. They do incite a curiosity about life; and it is this same curiosity, which, carried to a higher field, has given us Tom Jones, Vanity Fair, Barchester Towers and David Copperfield. The reporter sows the seed which the novelist reaps. And college journalism. There is such a thing, even outside of the emi- nently practical problem of furnishing the fitting nutriment for future star reporters and city editors. For the col- lege is a play within a play, a small eddy moved by its own forces in the stream of life. And in this little play, in this eddy, events tread on each oth- er ' s heels with the same aimless, irri- tating insistence as in the whole of which it is a part. There are small Ulysses, Shakespeares, and, save the mark, perhaps Omars, Cleopatras and even Balaam ' s bi-syllabic beast. It were a pitty, were our curiosity con- cerning these and their doings and say- ings not aroused, and an interest in college life not stirred. For out of this curiosity, this interest, and out of this alone, can grow that thing which most exalts a college, a true college spirit which finds itself only when embodied in a college literature. Football vic- tories, Olympics, cotillions, mass meet- ings, freshman caps, are of no avail to create this spirit until they have once fitted into a literary tradition. And the seed for this tradition is sown daily, silently, persistently by our curious col- lege reporter who dares to look college life in the face and record its features. p. M. BUCK. Jr. in cfjool of journalism tf ' oURNALISM is a profession ( I which is rapidly taking its . ' place among the practical courses offered by the universities of the country. It is still in its infancy — as the saying is concerning innovations which are not yet established and be- come recognized. Yet it is coming through the same criticism that was leveled at the teaching of law, medi- cine, engineering, and other practical courses. These had to go through a trial stage, meeting the objections of the old-timers in the professions who believed that they " could not be taught. " So it is with journalism. Some successful newspaper men op- pose teaching the subject, on the ground that it is not a subject which can be taught — it has to be learned in the press room, on the " runs, " on the desks, and with the roar of the press and the odor of ink at hand. But these men are giving way to the college- trained journalists who know the theory of news service as well as the practice, know the business methods of the newspaper office and have the experience of trained men at hand to substantiate their judgments. Necessarily the law of supply and demand must show that there is a real need for a school of journalism. If there are no students in Nebraska who would avail themselves of the course when it was offered there would be no object in its installation. If the grad- uates of the course could not get posi- tions and there was no demand for their services, then it would be a waste of time to consider it. But there is every reason to believe that there is an actual need for the school as well as a demand for the product. On the staffs of the Daily Nebraskan, the Cornhusker and the Awgwan there are always men — sometimes women — CornfjuSfeer, 1914 29 who feel the call and power of the press. This in spite of the fact that there is no course of instruction to guide them and to develop their talents at present. Their number would be in- creased if the opportunity and impetus was given. On the other hand it would be possible to name a long list of Ne- braska graduates and former students who are at present making good with some publications — newspaper, maga- zines, advertising agencies. Graduates of the journalistic courses of other uni- versities find positions awaiting them with metropolitan journals, in the newly developing field of country jour- nalism, or in other positions where trained men are needed. The universi- ties have made this an era of trained men, and now the journalists should have the opportunity of benefitting by the corps of specialized instructors, the critical atmosphere of the class room, and the practical viewpoint given by study in a professional school. The introduction of a course in prac- tical journalism would necessitate very little change in the present general course of study. The journalistic course is primarily founded upon litera- ture, rhetoric and commerce, and there are strong departments for these sub- jects at the present time. It would be necessary to complete the course by offering special work in such subjects as " news gathering, " " writing, " " edi- torial policy, " " history of the news- paper, " " advertising, " " business man- agement, " and so on, depending upon the extensiveness of the course planned. This could be handled by one man, taking a chair in journalism in the de- partment of rhetoric. The school could be developed as the need be- came evident, once the course of study was organized and directed by an in- structor in journalism. Once established a department or school of journalism would play an im- portant part in the life of the univer- sity. Aside from training men for their chosen profession it would be a prac- tical addition to the existing depart- ments. It would form a nucleus of men of similar literary tastes and capa- bilities. They would be interested in maintaining high standards in the stu- dent publications. The present disor- ganized system of reporting for the Daily Nebraskan could be discontinued for an efficient system based upon credit and class room supervision. While the editors of the various publi- cations would not necessarily be jour- nalistic students, they could have well- trained assistants. Furthermore, in the event of the establishment of a uni- versity press, which would take care of the general and departmental print- ing which is now done by contract, the department could be used to the ad- vantage of the university, at the same time giving the students more thor- ough and practical instruction. A strong department of journalism would meet what seems to be a genuine need at Nebraska. Such a course has been tried and found successful at other institutions, and there is a definite demand for its establishment here. It deserves consideration, then, among the other needs of a greater Nebraska.

In summer this campus is one of the most beautiful places in the state and is fast becom- ing one of the first places to be visited by tourists when passing through Lin- coln. The " Farm Oval, " extending be- tween the two rows of large, artistic buildings, lends an effect very pleasing to the eye and gives one the impression that this surely would be a delightful place in which to study. And one is still more impressed with this fact when he meets and talks with the genial " farm " professors who are al- ways very willing to impart informa- tion pertaining to their individual lines of work. The fact that this is a pleas- ant and profitable place to study is proved by the increasing number of students who register in the School and College of Agriculture each succeeding year. A point which is not clear in the minds of a great many is the distinc- tion between the School and the Col- lege of Agriculture in the University. The school is of high school standing, and the students attending it take all their work on the Farm campus. The courses given are quite typical of the high school, interspersed with good courses in agriculture. The school term lasts from November to April, allowing the students, who come mostly from farms of Nebraska, to help their par- Cornfjusifeer, 1914 M ents on the home farm in the summer. The courses in the school include sev- eral in home economics, which are be- coming very popular. A large percent- age of the graduates of the School of Agriculture return to the farms of the state and help a great deal in improv- ing agricultural and home conditions in their communities. The College of Agriculture on the other hand is in the University proper, and has the same standing as the other colleges in the University. The stu- dents registered in the College of Agri- culture, with the exception of the Freshmen, take all their work, except that pertaining to agriculture, on the " down town campus. The " Ag. " stu- dents appreciate this very much, as by this arrangement they are enabled to take work in the various departments of the University, while at the same time carrying on their work at the " Farm. " ' and are enabled to mingle with the students in the other colleges of the University. The men and women in the College of Agriculture take a lively interest in University activities and the " Ags " are well represented in athletics. The College of Agriculture is grow- ing rapidly, and without doubt in a few years will be one of the largest in the University. The teaching of agricul- ture in Nebraska is comparatively new, but with fast improving methods and new ideas it is going to become not only a larger issue in the schools of the stale, but also in the other activities of the slate. The success, so far, of the University Stale Farm and its activi- ties, is surely a step in the right direc- tion, and agricultural education in Ne- braska seems to be on the highway leading to very marked improvement in the fulure. 32 CornfnisUrr. 1014 Mnibergitp l eefe C ' ' hE state University is es- jsentially the creature of the ' people. It is kept alive vi ith their money and is subject to their control. It is therefore natural that they should feel something more than a passing interest in its welfare and progress. But there are reasons why a certain per cent of the people have received a wrong impression of the school. Prob- ably some promising young man has returned to their community from here a total failure. He is, perhaps, the only one to so return out of twenty from the town, but he is remembered while the others are forgotten. It was to the Uni- versity he came, and of course the Uni- versity is to blame for his unfortunate mistakes. Again, the newspaper accounts of what is going on are very misleading scure corner, while unsavory pranks are written up in glaring head lines. This leads the people to believe that the undesirable is in the great majority at our institution. The number of people who have this idea are sufficiently large to work a considerable damage to the school. The attendance is cut down and the appropriations are more difficult to get. For these reasons all will consider a cause worthy which has as its object the correction of the false impressions of the school existing throughout the state. " University Week " has this as one of its primary objects. This institution is merely a week of entertainment fur- nished to a town by University talent. The authorities of the extension de- partment of the University will con- tract with the authorities of the town to to the readers. There is custom existing for reasons more or less obvious whereby news items of debates, con- certs, plays and other commendable activities are crowded into some ob- fur- nish them with this en- tertainment at cost. The town may make its ' : own arrangements for col- lecting the cost. By way of illustration we might sug- gest the following as a typical program : On Monday night. Dr. Condra with his movies of university life: on Tuesday CornijuSfeer, 1914 •33 night, the Cadet Band, with an enter- tainment such as they gave on their recent tour; on Wednesday night, the debating teams in a discussion of some important question of the day ; on Thursday night, the Glee Club in one of their harmony festivals; on Friday night, the Dramatic Club in some play such as the " Servant in the House. " During the day appropriate lectures on civic and home subjects by members of the faculty could be supplied. What would be the effect of this week of entertainment? Dr. Condra ' s lecture would show the people what the University does when at work. The other programs would show them the profitable outside activities open to the student. The logical result is the cor- recting of the erroneous impressions of what we really are. With this correc- tion will come the increased attendance and more liberal appropriations. But there are other benefits that we can but mention here. Think of the pleasure such a week at the end of the school year would furnish! The expe- rience to those proving themselves capable of taking part would be invalu- able. It would mean added stimulus to representative University activities. It would furnish the people of the state with a very profitable line of amuse- ment at nominal cost. It would help to give the people the benefit of the most progressive ideas of their institu- tion of learning. Before this book is in the hands of The students must put the best they been taken to secure the adoption of " University Week. " When it is adopted it must be made a success. The student must put the best they have into the work. In so doing they will be doing more for their Alma Mater than her greatest football war- rior. Help popularize Nebraska Uni- versity ! Docational Craining in tijc ' Mvts College If a Fresliman should come to our University with the innocuous inten- tion of acquiring a liberal education before specializing in professional or technical work, and if he, in the fur- therance of that purpose, should enroll in our College of Arts and Sciences, this Freshman would discover before receiving his scholarly label, Artium Baccalaurus, that he had cherished an impossible ideal. Of course, he would have the sym- pathy of some impractical professors in this College, who still believe that the function of a liberal education is to give a well-balanced, sane conception 34 (Cornlnishrr. 1014 of the ordinary affairs of life, rather than a capacity for " doing things. " He would hear such a teacher occasionally say that it is at least equally important for us to find out why we should build bridges as to learn how to build them; that if we measure civilization in terms of material progress, our development will be certainly lop-sided. But the more modernized teachers of those sub- jects, each of which is supposed to con- tribute to intellectual culture and broaden the spiritual horizon, insist on giving to all comers slow, detailed, technical courses intended primarily to train specialists. Set out to learn some of the essential facts of ancient and modern world his- tory and you will encounter an admir- able course in training for historical research. Go into chemistry or the bio- logical sciences to obtain a general knowledge of the natural forces and you are met by a mass of facts which are chiefly of value only to the scien- tists. Try modern languages and you find yourself in teachers ' courses. Go into economics or sociology and they ' ll try to make economists or social serv- icers of you. English literature is rep- uted to depend for its subsistence on word-counting, and rhetoric seems in some cases to be presented as an end in itself. One who attempts to find out what philosophy is will discover it means here brain anatomy, metaphysics and logic, illuminating the history of human thought tremendously — if you know enough about them. Mathemat- ics and the classics, those two strong- holds of liberal education — what does anything short of an intensive study of these add to the sanity of our judg- ments? The difficulty of securing a liberal education, a well-balanced conception of the ordinary affairs of life, in our Arts College, seems to be due to voca- tional training by so many of the pro- fessors in charge of the various sub- jects. It should be sufficiently obvious that a student in college can thorough- ly master only one or two of the de- partments of learning that he finds open, and it ought likewise to be clear that nothing short of a little general knowledge of all the other branches will make him an educated man. Since we cannot expect every student to do intensive work in every department in the College, and as we would hardly admit that intensive work in one or two departments is enough, then it seems that each department should provide, in addition to the technical or " vocational " courses for its specialists, a general course with about a year ' s work, offering to the non-specialist a comprehensive survey of the contribu- tion that branch of learning has made to civilization. Only by existence of such courses in all departments can a student in four years acquire his heri- tage of the wisdom of the ages.

XT IS not an easy matter to cor- rectly estimate the present day value of the literary society which T. Jefferson founded nearly 140 years ago. Plenty of college graduates are to be found, both members and non-members, who declare that it is entirely useless; though it is observed that members seldom fail to display, in a fairly conspicuously place, the key. In the undergraduate section, how- ever, it is likely that most students would like to be candidates for it, and probably not many would fail to take the required classics or mathematics if they thought their general average was high enough to justify hopes. Many persons who have made the society are firmly convinced that it is a mighty influence on student ideals: and many who have failed to make it assert that membership is superior to all other student honors or achievements. A certain commercial value in the little watch charm, especially to prospective teachers, is generally admitted. Applied to individual cases, any of these points of view is without doubt well substantiated; concerning the soci- ety ' s general influence they are each and all incomplete. The worth of a Phi Beta Kappa depends entirely on the way it is obtained. High grades and a superficial knowledge of Latin or trigo- nometry do not of themselves signify scholarship; consequently some stu- dents are elected because they have used criminal cunning in the selection of easy courses. So far as such mem- bers are concerned, the society clearly serves no useful purpose. Some there are, on the other hand, who supplement whatever of natural ability they may possess with diligent study throughout their college course, and thereby attain some of the elements of an education. To such students membership in Phi Beta Kappa comes as a recognition of faithful and efficient efforts toward scholarship, and insofar as it has encouraged those efforts it is an influence toward high ideals in the student body. Every organization that has as yet been devised to reward merit, so far as I know, has been invaded by the strat- egy of the unmeritorious; but such an organization fails to be useful only when in the latter class falls the ma- jority of its members. From my acquaintance with the seniors who re- ceived P. B. K.s this year and with other members of former years, it seems to me that nearly all have been serious and industrious students, and that the undeserving are a rather insig- nificant minority. The qualifications are somewhat ar- bitrary and mechanical, it is true, and undoubtedly many persons of high worth are excluded by them; yet even a grocer hiring a delivery boy would prefer, other things being equal, the lad who had received high grades in school. Phi Beta Kappa signifies a consistent record covering three and a half years, including certain " re- quired " subjects which demand ardu- ous and fruitful labor; therefore I believe that its membership deserves and receives consideration as an in- dication of superior aptitude and in- dustry. 36 Conilmsliri, 1014 Wi)t Hlunocents; r HE INNOCENTS is an honor- ■ jary Senior society which per- petuates itself by electing, to- ward the close of the school year, the thirteen juniors who have given prom- ise of the greatest influence in the up- building of college spirit. Drawing its members from all branches of school activities, the body endeavors to be representative of the whole school, rather than of a faction or a profession or a clique. The peculiar machinery of election used and the diversity of interests of the members tend strongly to prevent " log-rolling " in the selec- tion of junior candidates. Election to this society is therefore held up as a worthy goal to the underclassmen. The work of the Innocents is carried on very quietly and unostentatiously, it being the purpose to influence and per- suade, rather than to command, the whole student body to work for move- ments tending toward a bigger and broader Nebraska. Such was the ideal, at least, of the founders. How far the reality has fal- len short of it may hardly be taken from the word of a single individual, nor be judged by a few acts of the so- ciety. Considerable adverse criticism has been expressed to the effect that by it nothing is accomplished. In this criticism the facts are unfortunately often obscured by ignorance on the part of one who is not a member, or, by craving for individuality at any cost, on the part of one who is a member. Perhaps the rallies, torch-light parades, freshman convocation, Cornhusker ban- quet, arrangements for the debate, and investigation of such projects as fresh- man caps, single tax, student council and provisions for social life in the new University plans are rather insignifi- cant feats for thirteen rather more than commonly efficient seniors, but these are carried out, with little noise and a minimum of personal advertis- ing. Perhaps one reason why the Inno- cents ' activities are not greater is the vaguesness of their delegated author- ity, the indefiniteness which has seemed to some good reason for the founding of a student council, with special, con- crete jurisdiction. Another might be the dearth of real school spirit, the sel- fishness and inertia which make it so difficult to get support for any under- taking which promises to benefit the whole school, but not particularly the immediate movers. But two weak- nesses certainly do appear to be in- herent in the society and scarcely to be avoided. One is the concentration of student " honors " and activities on a few especially enthusiastic individuals, so that the men who make the best Innocents have already too many du- ties to be able to undertake much addi- tional work. The other is the clash of opinion as to details and methods which results from the strong-minded- ness — or obstinacy — of all the men who are naturally picked out as school lead- ers. This trait causes great difficulty and long debate and much delay in making decisions, and even when a majority is finally brought to favor a single policy, the disgruntled minority often stir up enough opposition on the outside to neutralize the movement. Some things are done, therefore, by the Innocents which would not be done, or done not so well, without them. On account of certain limita- tions which are inevitable to it, how- ever, the efficiency of the society may at times scarcely justify its existence. There still remains to be considered the effect it has upon the younger gen- erations, who are all potential candi- dates for membership. This seems to Cornftusfeer, 1914 37 be the brighter side of the shield, or of the devil ' s head, mayhap. Though sus- picion sometimes attaches, nor with- out reason, to the fairness and good judgment of the elections, yet most freshmen and sophomores and juniors know that social and personal and fra- ternity distinctions count for less in the selection of the Innocents than of candidates for any other student honor in school; that a man who has dis- tinguished himself in any line of vol- untary, extra-curriculum activities is likely to make the society regardless of his personal relations with the out- going members. Ambition for the distinction of mem- bership may, and very frequently does, result in excessive attention to the activities and a corresponding neglect of studies, which is unfortunate. The Innocents should, perhaps, have a higher standard of scholarship to counteract that. Participation in stu- dent affairs, nevertheless, with the as- sociations and adaptability which it brings, is a good training for life, and the stimulus which this Senior society gives to it must be reckoned pretty largely on the side of benefit. The members themselves have their vision broadened by contact with rep- resentatives from other lines of activity. Their constituents must in turn profit by this larger understanding of the problems of the University. The whole University, at least, needs to have its activities knit together, and a clearing- house, such as the Innocents affords, is a means whereby something of ad- justment may be accomplished. ijc Jf ratcrnitp (Question " QiUlicrr llicrc is ini ' strri ' . it is griirr.illp siipposrCi lli.il llirrt niiisi be cuil. " U i ' roii. HE ACADEMIC fraternities ■ jhave a reputation in some parts of the state. People think they are responsible for all the idling and drinking and other indiscreet pastimes current among University students. When Reginald appears on his na- tive heather during the holidays with an incoherent cross-section of heraldry on his lapel, and confesses or boasts that it signifies he has been pledged to the Mu Maw Mus, the friend villagers pass the world that Reggie has gone to the dogs. An even harsher judgment of these mum ' s-the-word gangs prevails among those left out and some harrassed pro- fessors, and a still bitterer opinion among the tradesmen who have been beguiled by large sales into loo large a line of credit. The former see that the obvious social display of the col- lege is from the fraternity circles; that the holders of school honors are most often conveniently described by a Greek label ; so they conclude that here is criminal combination in restraint of trade. The latter recognize by the dif- ficulty of making collections the symp- toms of young persons living beyond their means, and define a fraternity as a habitat and seminary for dead-beats. Yet, after all, one who has seen fra- ternity life from the inside, as well as from the outside, knows that these judgments are all too summary to sum up the nature and function of the fra- ternities. The secrecy, and the signs and symbols, and even the the coats- of-arms are childish enough, it is true, but on the whole they are comparative- ly innocent. In most cases it is safe to say that the rituals themselves are preachments of rather high ethical codes. The latter are not usually con- tagious, nor are the tremendous oaths, 38 CornlnifiUrr. 1014 so that the mystery exists only in the mind of the outsider, and all fraterni- ties are essentially only boys in a com- bined boarding and social club, with a good deal of loyalty to the traditions of their club. This loyalty is the cause of much that is worse and much that is best in the acts of fraternity men. The under- classmen are usually in the stage of development where they cannot con- ceive of their owing any duty to their fellow-students as such, nor any obliga- tion to the University, but devotion to a fraternity, frantic zeal to add to the proud list of honors won by former members and the banner upperclass- men, seems to come as natural to them as a dog to a watering-trough. Thus it is that fraternity men make such a scramble for social and school distinc- tions, and on account of superior or- ganization, as well as greater numbers, are generally successful in taking the majority of prizes. Loyalty of this type, though it is narrow and tribal, and leads to such apparently " undem- ocratic " performances, is undoubtedly better than utter selfishness. If our average Freshman and Sophomore is not capable of seeing a wider horizon than that of a fraternity, which we sus- pect to be the case, it is certainly desir- able that he spend his energies fight- ing for his organization rather than his person. The scramble for recognition, more- over, though springing from competi- tion with other frats and with the " barbs, " is ofttimes of great benefit both to members and to society. For many a green, awkward, self-conscious Freshman, whose only desire was to get through school without anyone realiz- ing it, has been " spotted " as a diamond- in-the-rough by some enterprising fra- ternity scout, decorated with the colors, and so thrilled with the frenzy of add- ing to the lustre of the sacred shield that he has developed capacities of which no one would have dreamed. That thing happens to other than fra- ternity men, it is true. But the begin- ning of it in scores of brilliant frater- nity men is traceable to the stirrings of frat spirit. The presence of these men on the football team, or those men in Phi Beta Kappa or some others in the Innocents, can be accounted for by their desire, three or four years ago, to work for their bunch. And in working for the bunch they often work out into a larger life, forget the old distinctions o5 clans and tribes, become real citizens of the world and of their time. A fraternity is an antidote to indi- vidualism. Cornfjugfeer, 1914 39 iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimi Ill llllltlMIIIMIIMIIMIIfllllllllllllllimilllllllllll i O ONE just from High School, ■ Jthe University represents the very acme of life, a miniature colony with all the gay, irresponsible pleasure of a Paris and the sterner cul- ture of an Athens. To what wide vistas of learning and experience its gates open! It was the biggest event in my life, not even exceeded by graduation from High School, when I set out with hope- ful face towards the " Uni. " as I fondly called it. There was the little circle of home faces at the station, all smiling encouragingly as I faced the first, long absence from home; the mother with a suspicion of tears in her eyes and a tender smile, and the father with the final, stern injunctions as to behavior, extravagance and my other childish faults. There were the five or six girls whom I had known always, all buzzing their interest in the general proceeding and shrilling their final command. " To write — to write. " as the train pulled out. Then the long car-ride, with the wheels humming over and over their promise of what delights were in store. A last look, as the town passed out of sight; a sad thought of the people be- hind, and a childish resolve to make them proud of me, and I was fairly launched on my University career. I arrived at last, a tired, utterly stupid Freshman, to join the throng of hurrying students. Then the days of registration, utterly wearying and dis- couraging, where I was told my nice, little map of studies was all wrong, and where I was pushed here and there to my utter bewilderment to fulfill the commands on the little green and yel- low cards I carried. I arranged for work I never dreamed of taking after telling my tale of woe to the strangely unsympathetic faces of the deans, and hurried away from the busy armory with a vague idea that I had committed a great mistake in coming here. Then to face nights of homesick mis- ery, where the calm haven of home seemed so utterly desirable. Towards the end of registration week came the rushing parties of the sorori- ties, where I lived in a haze of polite smiles and tireless conversation, at pink ices and macaroons at all hours of the day and night, and was passed in judgment before a critical audience. That was truly a bewildering time, where I hurried from one place to an- other and was captured into corners to hold long, tiresome conversations on national standing and other things un- interesting and teased into half-prom- ises. That was a season of half-pleasure and half-misery, until the last day I was released from doubts by suddenly discovering that I loved everybody in a certain sorority and that tlicy loved 40 ConifnifiUfr. 1014 me, and I was enthusiastically certain of where I would go on the fateful afternoon of pledging day. Rig ht here let me say that sororities and their rushing system can cause more undiluted torture than any Span- ish inquisition, and to prove it let me tell a story. There were once four girls, all good friends from childhood up, who came down to school together, and three of us — yes, I was one of them — were invited to join one particular sorority and the fourth girl, our good friend, was left behind. There was pos- itive Indian cruelty in that. The morning over, invitations came. We took them in strained silence, while she, dropped entirely for no par- ticular reason, turn- ed away with flushed face. She held her head up and we were the ones who shrank back shame-faced and miserable. I could never have had the stamina to drop out of the lives of the three girls I had grown up with and make a new circle of my own. I would have flown back to home where there could be no unreasoning distractions. But she was truly a heroine who kept her silence all morning while we rather hysterically talked and laughed, and who finally spoke to us in a new, strained voice of where we should go to dinner. What a terrible mistake to hold hu- man judgment up as a standard! So- rorities must look to this type, must select the best, so-called best, the pret- tiest ; those that others want and pass by without a qualm the thousand de- serving girls who are unnoticed. To these last this tribute: That it is from them the college grows, and broadens and accomplishes many of its wider purposes. Well, the days went fast and I found myself settled in a new home, where I felt vaguely unimportant, but very happy. Everything was different and interesting. Each day brought a fresh delight and an enthusiastic letter to send home. It was good to feel your- self one of the hurrying throng towards the 8 o ' clock classes, to watch the sea- sons flicker through the campus and meet every new face with a half-con- scious challenge in your own. In later years the unreasoning delight of that first year at school rises up to make you smile half- tearfully that you can ' t experience the same joy again. It was truly life to be a mere unit in the big classes, to study hard and play hard- er, and to take the good-natured jests at you as a Freshman with positive delight. And it is only the Freshman who feels so overwhelming in things, so con- sciously important and so much alive and striving. There was the keenest pleasure in the football rallies in the old Armory, where I worshipped at the feet of the big men around school who could get up and talk their hopes for the football years; where even the frantic yells could not give vent to my vigor. It is then that your school spirit chokes you with it; then that you long to do some big thing for your school, to do your part for the good, old college. When we poured out from the mass- meeting into the sunny, autumn air, every building on the old campus Cornftusfeer, 1914 seemed to speak eloquently of its share in our hopes, which were soon to be realized in the great games. And those games! Words fail to do justice to a good foot ball game. It is something that lifts you out of your petty self into unforgettable ardor for your school, and you come home ex- hausted from the effort of conveying all you feel through one fee ble throat. There were the class meetings, where no order or desire for order prevailed: where I timidly cast my vote for some big boy who seemed to be running everything, and could race home, de- lighted at a duty well done, and feeling the whole weight of class politics on my shoulders. The greatest thing in school — what is it? I say the people you meet, the associations you make and, above all, the tender life-long sweetness of the friendships. Where you study side by side, work and play together, it forms a bond that no later separation can break. What elusive qualities we admire in our friends! Sometimes they appear to us to be so charming, so adaptable, so sympathetic; and yet again meeting them, they are cold and unresponsive. We make perhaps few real friends in school, but many acquaintances. I cannot neglect the delights of meet- ing the masculine side of the world. which I divided into three classes — the Freshmen boys as self-conscious and perplexed as myself, whom I could look down upon and talk to with conscious superiority; the older men, the " big guns " of the school, who trod the earth as if just from Olympus, and received their homage with lordly condescen- sion; and that bewildering class called " spoofers, " whose talk is dazzling but dangerous, and who can tell to a mi- nute degree how much flattery to deal out. But all this dearly gained knowledge was of little avail when the dreaded examinations came; a week of turmoil and " cramming. " when I rushed to classes with fear and trembling, only to discover that through the kindness of the professors I could answer most every question. Then school starting over again; a long stretch through spring when the campus never looked so inviting and every blade of grass holds out its own particular invitation. Those were the days when I walked and walked, in endless directions, sim- ply because the spring fever was in my veins and drove me on. and there were not nearly enough dances in which to give vent to my good spirits. So the school life hurried me on in a triumphant first year, and June came all too soon, to break up the happy households and disturb the sweet inti- macies. The Seni- or realized that now she was los- ing a very preci- ous part of her life. but the Freshman ii ' joiced that there was more in store for her.

The committee especially empha- sized that there should be no delay because the book was ready for the press. They took the precaution not to show me the copy. Possibly they thought that if I should see the copy I would be unable to write the " Foreword. " I would be so interested in looking over the prospective book that I would devote all my time to reading it until the printers were cry- ing for copy. However, this makes no difference. If the ci r- cumstances do not permit me to see the copy in advance, no- body will read the " Foreword " afterwards, so the honors will be equal. Though I have not seen the copy, I have seen something better — the group of students who are getting it out. Each year the Cornhusker and the rest of the University are improv- ing. Each class is a little larger and finer than the preceding. If the University and the Cornhusker were getting no better each year, we might as well lock the front gates and throw the key into the bottomless depths of Salt Creek. Retrogression, or marking time, is unthinkable. Not only is the University enjoying its normal growth, but the best friends of the institution predict that we are about to enter a great period of expansion. Some of Nebraska ' s warmest supporters are not getting excited about the matter of University location. When the people of the state who own the institution shall have decided the matter, a part of the blessing bestowed upon us by the last legislature will become at once available for our uses. One of the results will be that in the good time to come the Cornhusker will have a new den. I have watched with interest the appearance of every Som- brero and Cornhusker since the second one was issued. Some of the early issues contain snap-shots which I took as an ama- teur photographer before I reformed. The improvements be- tween this book, which by faith I praise, and some of the earlier editions typify the progress of the University as a whole. Vigor, virility and the free Nebraska spirit have been pre- served. To these staple Nebraska virtues the entire University community has added a broader culture, a sounder learning and, one might add, a more discriminating sense of humor. Thankful for the progress that has been made during all these years, more hopefully than ever we look forward to the future of the University of Nebraska.

It con- ■ jtains more fact than fiction. Its compilation involves the collection of r the faces, together with interesting facts, scandalous and otherwise, concerning approximately three thousand University students and fifty-two professors. It contains a wealth of minute and valuable information about the interesting people, places, organizations and events of your University. It is a Westminster Abbey of your great men, a Blue Book of your elite, and a Trav- ler ' s Guide to the beautiful spots on your miniature " campus. " There is a peculiar charm in finding yourself and your friends on the printed pages, and we are confident that for each of our gentle readers there will be at least one interesting page in this volume. The CORNHUSKER is a book of memories, upper class men — a moving picture show of your college days, and we will be content with our seven months ' devotion to this task if it serves no greater purpose than to keep the pleasant memory of old scenes and young, familiar faces clear for you in later years. —THE 1914 STAFF.

It was the result of four or five years of deliberate consideration of the needs and place of such a body. Roscoe Pound, who had strongly urged such a society, said that " the very purpose of its existence was to advance University interests at every possible point ; to furnish a compact corps of harmonious workers, where college spirit and enthusiasm might be generated; to give a body of men who would be pledged to put their shoulders to the wheel in all University undertakings; to be a guiding central body to lead in those things that fail in the University of Nebraska because, being left to the student body in general, the old maxim applies, ' What is everybody ' s business is nobody ' s business. ' " And this is the standard which the Innocents have since attempted to follow. It has been the Innocents who have been in charge of the football rallies and torch-light parades, and have chosen the cheer leaders to lead in these celebra- tions. They have managed the Cornhusker banquets ; they have given sup- port to the observance of Ivy Day, at which time the men for the next year are tapped. It is the Innocents who conduct the Freshmen Convocation at the beginning of each school year and present to the new men of the University their first ideas and conceptions of student life. They supervise the annual Olympics between the Sophomores and Freshmen. They have aided and co- operated with both faculty and student body in a number of different enter- prises, such as the campus band concerts. Dandelion Day, Sneak Day, Fete Day, University Night, a University song, the annual " shirt tail " parade, the single tax and even steps to get the present athletic field. In all of these things they have always maintained the strict policy of " no advertising, " always attempting to make it appear that it came from the student body rather than from the Senior society. And, as a result, at times their motives and actions were misunderstood.

The members of Sigma Delta Chi are chosen for their proficiency in fthe work which is sponsored by the fraternity, for scholarship and for general ability. In addition, they must be members of the two upper classes, or sopho- mores in their second semester. It will be the principal work of the fraternity for the first few years to assist in advancing the cause of a school of journalism at Nebraska. Its members, through their experience in the student publications, are aware of the advantages that would come to the University and its students through such a course and the increased interest in jour- nalism and student publications. The fraternity elects to associate membership men in business or professional work who are interested in such an organization.

Kearney 0nx rabuatcs XF YOU should be asked why you know that Nebraska is a great institution, how would you go about it to prove to your inquisitor that certainty on your part? Of course, you could point to our buildings, our professors, our great number of students; but before the questioner would show enthusiasm for your side of the question you must take him out into the laboratory of life and let him see what our graduates have given to the larger civilization. Approximately five thousand graduates have scattered themselves to the " four cor- ners of the globe. " Almost as many more former students claim allegiance to the University of Nebraska. Lawyers, bankers, teachers, farmers, manufacturers, engineers, doctors, journalists, authors, diplomats, statesmen, merchants, lecturers, soldiers and live business men are showing to the world what it means to get training in the Uni- versity of Nebraska. If somebody would give me a ship that I might follow my own inclination and visit our graduates throughout the world, I would want to have a full cargo of unbelievers that I might watch their astonishment as they realized the unselfishness and enthusiasm with which our graduates entered chosen work in foreign fields. Suppose we set sail from New Orleans. In spite of revolutions and counter revolutions, we will leave the boat at Vera Cruz and journey inland through Mexico and meet the assembled Ne- braskans at Mexico City. George I. Babcock, ' 94, one of the international secretaries of the Y. M. C. A.; James H. Bell, ' 02, publisher of the " El Diario " : Elliott, ' 04, clergy- man; French, ' 10; Hickman, ' 98; Lyon, ' 95; Montmorency, ' 94; Pollard. ' 96 — all engi- neers. Rev. E. E. Troyer, August Turner, ' 03, Y. M. C. A. secretary; Dr. Frederick Voss and Burton W. Wilson, ' 96, would be among the number who would greet us. A more representative bunch of men could not be found. We will journey forward rap- idly into the lands washed by the Caribean Sea. In Hayti we would meet A. J. CoUett, ' 00, newly appointed director general of public works of the Republic of Santo Do- mingo. In Porto Rico we would meet a corps of teachers, including Misses Brown, ' 13; Dunlavy, ' 07; Kincaide. ' 09; Lynch, ' 12; Piper. ' 04; Stockdale, ' 09; Swezey, ' 09; Anna Tibbetts, ' 08; and George L. Fawcett, ' 05, who is in the government service. In the Canal Zone six engineers and two teachers are doing their share of the work in com- pleting one of the wonders of the world. In Nicaragua Clifford N. Catlin, ' 03, is assay- ing and prospecting. In Venezuela Lynn Huntington, 04, short story writer, adventurer and engineer, and wife, Helen Streeter Huntington, are enjoying life on a large coffee plantation. From tropical regions we will visit Alaska, where we find one teacher, one engineer and one physician. In the Hawaiian Islands we discover J. G. Smith, ' 88, a rich planter; Clarence W. Rhodes, ' 76, of the Hawaiian Gazette, and Mrs. G. S. Gere, ' 90. In Japan Arthur Jorgenscn, ' 08, is secretary of the Y. M. C. A. of Tokio; William Axling and his wife, Lucinda Burrow Axling, are missionaries, and Kinju Akagi. ' 11, has returned to his native land to help with engineering projects. In Corea, Mella Mathews, ' 97, is a missionary. In the Philippines twenty-five graduates of Nebraska are among the lead- 208 Cornf)u«Urr. 1014 ing citizens. Joseph F. Boomer, ' 99, is editor of the Cable News American; Chas. S. Lobinger, ' 88, is a superior court judge; Archibald E. Palen, ' 07, is superintendent of the bureau of public works. Brigadier General Pershing, ' 93, has his headquarters at Manilla. There are many others, their occupations being teachers, soldiers and business men. In China we have eight missionaries, two business men, two professors and one consul. Claude W. Mason, ' 05, chose Siam as his field for medical missionary work. Australia has a representative from Nebraska in the person of Charles W. Irwin, ' 98. Let us take a rapid survey. In India H. N. Allen, ' 96, is a professor in the University of Poona. Basu, ' 05, is teaching his own people in the University of Calcutta. Six mis- sionaries are scattered at various stations in interior India. In Africa James Barkley, ' 92, and wife, ' 96, are living at Port Elizabeth in Cape Town, where Mr. Barkley is an electrical engineer. In Turkey Samuel Anderson, 02, and wife, ' 06, and Stella Lough- ridge, ' 95, are doing missionary work. In Bohemia John Bouchal, ' 12, is acting as vice consul, and Francis Petr, ' 04, is studying at Prague University. Clara Heimrod, ' 07, is located at Berne, Switzerland. Homer J. Edmiston, ' 92, is doing literary work in Rome, Italy. Germany has enticed about ten Nebraska graduate students to her universities. Dirk P. DeYoung, ' 07, is vice consul to Amsterdam, Holland, and has been making a name for himself as a writer on various phases of life in the Netherlands. In England Charles W. Wallace, ' 98, has been enlightening the world with his researches regarding the life of Shakespeare. Three or four other Nebraskans are in business in London. Thus we have seen that in almost any part of the world that there are Nebraskans to be found. In Canada seventeen Cornhuskers are subjects of the king of England. In the United States they are scattered about the states in the following numbers: Arkansas Maine Arizona Maryland 8 California ..192 Pennsylvania Colorado Michigan Minnesota 32 52 Rhode Island Delaware South Dakota District of Colu mbia. .. 70 Missouri.

No effort has been made in the past to keep in touch with this army of men and women who spent only a year or two on the campus. These ex ' s, however, have been proving their loyalty by co-operating in every way with the graduates in their activities for the University; their letters are just as enthusiastic and their visits about as frequent as those of the people holding degrees. Nebraska ' s first graduating class is still one of the livest in the catalogue. It con- sists of J. S. Dales, who has collected almost every copper of fees which have been paid to the University, and Judge William Snell, of Tacoma, Washington. There are only four classes which have a record of all graduates living. One hundred and eighty Corn- huskers have gone to their last resting place, or a per cent of about three and one-half. For the purpose of uniting this vast body of men and women through the common bonds of their Alma Mater, the Alumni Association of the University has been formed. The official organ is known as " The Nebraska Alumnus. " At the present time some- thing more than 20 per cent of the living graduates are subscribers after only six months of activity. The association promotes home comings, class reunions and local alumni clubs for the purpose of organizing the graduates, so that they are of distinct service in co-operating with one another and that they may be of service to the Uni- versity.

It is a democratic society whose ideal is to furnish inexpensive but wholesome literary and social entertainment. It affords an opportunity for social communion which is so essential as a recreation from study and also conducive to a balanced development. With the attainment of this ideal such a society ought to be a powerful factor in University life. Once a week the jolly " unions " meet in their splendid room on the third floor of the Temple, where they forget dull care and spend an evening playing games and enjoying a varied program of music, readings and talks. At the close all gather around the piano and sing the good old college songs until the lights blink and ' tis time to " see Nellie home. " The present year has been a very successful year for " Union Lit. " Its enrollment has been increased by a goodly number of new members of prom- ising ability. Some of the special features of the year were : a cottage party in the Penn woods, a boys ' and a girls ' program, a faculty night, a couple of fudge parties and the annual banquet at the Lindell. To its graduating members " Union Lit " has caused the days of college life to flit by more swiftly and pleasantly, and soon each one will express that word, which is found in every varied tongue of earth, that sad, sweet word " farewell. " Soon the sterner duties of life are upon all. Union to them is no more, save in memory, but each life bears the impress of every other life and the union of such influences as indissoluble forever. And though attention and interest are absorbed by the varied duties of life, yet in the after-glow fond memory will wander back to the good old days at Nebraska and the jolly times spent in Union Hall.

E. vj _ HE ENGINEERING Society is an organization having as its aim the d (T promotion of interest along engineering lines, and the encouragement of k Va closer fellowship among the students of the Engineering College. Its membership is composed of those students who belong to any of the fine de- partmental societies of the college — the student branches of the American Insti- tut,: of Electrical Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers. American Society of Agricultural Engineers, The University of Nebraska Society of Civil Engineers and The University of Nebraska Society of Architectural Engineers. The Society is governed by a board of control composed of the presidents of the departmental societies. This board elects the officers and appoints all commit- tees. Meetings are held regularly on the third Wednesday of each calendar month, provision being made for special meetings. Each departmental society, in turn, has charge of the program. Various engineering activities, such as Orpheum parties, smokers, dances, engineers ' week, etc., are planned and carried out during the school year. The Blue Print, a semi-annual technical publication, is the official journal of the En- gineering Society and is a great booster of engineering education and activities. MEMBERS. Albert, F. C.

The name of Bohemia ' s famous educational reformer, lohn Amos Komensky, or Comenius, was decided upon as the most appropriate title for the club. Immediately after organization the members of this club began corresponding with students at other universities and colleges in the west, with a view to organizing similar clubs at their respective schools. Today there are twenty- seven clubs located at different universities, colleges and in cities where there are no such schools. Clubs are located at such schools as the State Universities of Minnesota, Illi- nois, Iowa, Texas and Nebraska. Northwestern University. Ames and Coe Colleges in Iowa, and State Normal Schools in Texas. These clubs have formed a federation known as the " Educational Association of Komensky Clubs. " The Komensky Club at Lincoln directs and plans the activities of those clubs which have not the facilities for literary and historical studies. The official organ of these associated educational clubs, the " Komensky, " a monthly publication, is issued from this University. Almost two years ago the clubs, under the leadership of the local chapter, undertook to raise a fund for the purpose of erecting a statue of Komensky on the University campus in Lincoln. About $1,500 has already been actually collected, exclusive of prom- ised subscriptions. The prosperous growth of these Bohemian educational clubs is a matter of great pride to the local club, which is constantly active in earnest work for the advancement along literary lines of the second and third generations of Bohemian-Americans.

The purpose of this club was to bring into closer relation those students in the department of Roman History and Literature, who are most interested in the study, to promote Latin scholar- ship among the members and to advance in all ways the interests of the members and of the department. One year ' s work in the department must be completed before a student is eligible for election to the club, and election is based solely upon scholarship. The membership is limited to thirty, and as this includes graduate students of the department, the standard is very high. The meetings are held once a month at the homes of the members, where topics of interest to Latin students are discussed. Papers are read by the members, translations are made from Roman authors not usually read, Latin songs are sung, and a Latin play given nearly every year. One meeting of the year is always devoted to a program given by the faculty. After the program a social hour is enjoyed and refreshments served. Eighty per cent of the dues are devoted to the purchase of a memorial for the Latin Department, and as a result the office contains many beautiful busts, fine pictures and rare volumes. The color of the club is Roman purple and the flower is the violet. OFFICERS LAST SEMESTER Outhouse, Winnifred President Bixby.

During the past year the club has held regular meetings each fortnight. Subjects of public interest, as well as agricultural subjects, are discussed by the students, faculty members and other noted speakers. The social com mittee planned several dances, a banquet and many other entertainments which were well attended. Every one is wel- come, and Agricultural College men are especially asked to attend the meetings. In January, 1911, the Agricultural Club took over the publishing of the magazine, " Agriculture. " It has proven to be of great benefit to the students in the College of Agriculture as well as to other students and farmers. The magazine now has a circula- tion of about four hundred copies per month. Since December, 1911, the Agricultural Club has presented to all the members of the judging teams a gold fob. The following men have received fobs: Beck, C. G. Becgoff, A. H. Camp, R. H. Dale, E. E. Fouts, K. C. Raymond, H. Lathrope, L. A. Marrick, H. C. Patrick, C. B. Pier, H. B. Posson, R. J. Trumbull, F.

This year the report of a similar organization, which has proved very successful at Chicago, started the movement. Dr. Dales gave the first lecture and about thirty students responded to the notices sent out. At this meeting a constitution was drawn up and two officers elected. This organization is intended for all students interested in the subject and any one who has completed the Freshman year of chemistry may become a member. Each member gives one paper during the year. This may embody his original work, or simply deal with a subject in which he is interested. With the exception of the first one, all the programs have been furnished by the students. Such subjects as " Utiliza. tion of Factory By-Products, " " Di-cyanide Di-amidine Test For Cobalt and Nickel, " " Nebraska Pure Food Laws, " " Some Phases of Thermo-Dynamics and Manufacture of Steel and Iron " have been discussed.

Technical forestry problems are dealt with in a popular manner. Prominent foresters, lumbermen and botanists are secured each year to give special lectures to the club members. The club thus secures such knowl- edge that cannot be gotten by other means. The club has social purposes as well as scientific. In order that the members of the forestry department may get acquainted with each other, smokers and other stag parties are given. The main feature of the social side of the club is the annual pow-pow, held in the Cottonwood grove at the farm. The last meeting each year is a farewell banquet to the outgoing men. Throughout the history of the club there has been such a friendship maintained as exists in practically no other University organization. It is this feature which has devel- oped a fellowship never to be forgotten. The officers of this year are as follows: OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER. Roberts, P. H Dick, Robert Vice Fcrsling, C.

It was r founded in December, 1913, the purpose being, " The Promotion of the Interests of the Premedical Students. " To this end the society has been ad- dressed by several prominent doctors, including Drs. Orr, Wolcott, Barker, Poynter and Everetts. The first annual banquet was held February 20th, 1914, at the Lincoln, and proved to be a very successful afifair. A medic week has been planned for the second week in May.

Wharton moMmeuib CHE " SHO-U-ALL " Club, so-called from that favorite old southern expression, symbolic of the state of Missouri, was organized at Ne- braska in February, 1914. It is composed of students and faculty mem- bers of the Uni. of N. who are or have been natives or residents of Missouri. The club is composed of thirty-two members, several of whom are faculty members. At least half of enrollment are among the leading sororities and fraternities of the University. All parts of Missouri are represented: the northern part, perhaps, a little better than the others, as quite a few claim St. Joseph for their home town. Each one has to meet the one question, " To school. " and the answer is their name — to " Sho-U-All. " Meetings are held fortnightly and are divided as busi- ness and social meetings. Usually a dance or a program is arranged and the stunts put on well verify the name of the club. The " Sho-U-All " spirit is mani- fested everywhere and the Missourians show themselves capable of big things. Shortly after organization was effected an election was held and the fol- lowing officers chosen: B. H. Asendorf, President: M. H. R. Krugg, Vice President: Miss Hallie Workman, Secretary; and C. B. Neal, Treasurer. The purpose of the organization is to promote Missouri spirit and inci- dentally to set an example for the students of other states so that they may get together in a spirit of uniformity and, as the Missourians are doing, " Sho- U-All. " 232 Cornliuclter, 19t4 nibersiitp JP sitors - HE FEDERATION of Church Workers of the University of Nebraska is a ■ jgroup of religious leaders composed of four University pastors and the secre- Jtaries of the Christian Associations. Mr. Pope represents the Baptist students, r Mr. Worthley the Methodist, Mr. Howard the Congregational, Mr. Leland the Presbyterian, Mr. Ewing the Y. M. C. A., and Miss Drake the Y. W. C. A. These work- ers in the University aim to give expression to the spirit of co-operation in the modern church and aim to promote the leadership of the Great Master in the life and work of the students in the University. They strive to lead the students into the fellowship of the local churches and to encourage them to give expression to the Christian spirit in the religious activities of the various churches. During the year the federation has given encouragement to the young men of the Phillips Brook Club. It has also co-operated in a very sympathetic way in the organiza- tion of the Cosmopolitan Club. " The All-University Church Day " in early January orig- inated with this group of workers, when over 1,800 students attended the services of the local churches of Lincoln. The Institute on Church Life and Rural Ministers ' Short Course in Agriculture, planned for June 11th to June 17th, was arranged by this group of workers and bids fair to be an important gathering of those in the state interested in rural life. Weekly meetings have been held every Tuesday afternoon during the year. Leland has acted as president and Mr. Ewing as secretary.

Their histories are intimately connected, for they have fc grown together from a modest beginning until today the University of Nebraska holds a place among the leading universities of the United States and the Palladian Literary Society sends its influence through its members into every part of the state and into many parts of the world. University Hall opened its doors to students in September, 1871. At the close of the first week of school, Mr. J. S. Dales, now the honored steward of the University, called to order a meeting of the students who became charter members of the Palladian Society. The first president was W. H. Snell, now Judge Snell of Tacoma, Wash. For twenty years after its foundi ng it was the center of the social life of the University and even drew a large number of visitors from the city to its famous Friday evening programs, unique, spirited affairs, which developed the originality and oratorical powers of the members. Among the graduates of those days were Professor Fossler, Dr. Wolfe, Professor Caldwell, Professor Stuff, Judge and Mrs. Field and Chancellor Avery. The Society, as it exists today, seeks to cultivate scholarship, democratic ideals and broad sympathy in the University. Its traditions preserved from those far-away days are bred into each new " Pal " and it is the ardent wish of the Society that a wholesome and redeeming force may emanate from its searchings and strivings — a force which will guide and guard the social life of the school. The Society extends a warm welcome to visitors every Friday evening in its hall, recently redecorated through the combined efforts of the active and alumnae members.

HE NEBRASKA student branch of the American Society of Agricultural M C Engineers was organized in the spring of 1913. The following officers were Jelected for the current year: O. W. Sjogren, President; A. Kjeldgaard, Vice President; G. H. Thompson, Secretary; W. A. Nelson. Treasurer, and C. H. Anderson, Sergeant-at-Arms. The object of the organization is to encourage good fellowship among the agricultural engineers and by means of addresses from practical engineers and students to bring the members in closer contact with the practical appli- cations and thus obtain a more comprehensive scope of the field offered in agricultural engineering. The Society meets once a month, programs are rendered, followed by a general discussion. The latter feature permits all who wish to take a part in the program and also offers an opportunity to the members to obtain practice in expressing themselves on various subjects. Up to the present time the following papers have been given: November 6th. " Stream Gauging. " by D. P. Weeks, State Hydrographer; November 19th, before the general Engineering Society. " The Winnepeg Motor Contest, " by Prof. L. F. Seaton, and " Drainage Problems in North Carolina. " by I. D. Wood; December 4th, " Silo Construction in Nebraska, " by O. W. Sjogren; February 5th, " Manufacture of Portland Cement. " by I. D. Wood; March 5th, " The Agricultural Engineer as Man- ager of a Farm, " by L. D. Rhodes, and the " Agricultural Engineer as Farm Mechanic, " by C. H. Anderson. The meetings have been interesting and instructive and well attended by faculty and students. Our student branch was represented at the last national meeting by A. Kjeldgaard, student delegate, W. A. Nelson and J. P. Fairbanks. Three members of the faculty and several Nebraska graduates also attended the meeting. Professor Chase has been presi- dent of the society during the past year. At this meeting the society voted to give a " student branch " the same rights as that of an active member. Also that each member of a branch society automatically becomes a " junior member " of the A. S. A. E. upon graduation. The various interesting and instructive papers presented at this meeting, followed by an inspection of several large manufacturing plants about Chicago and vicinity, made the trip decidedly worth while.

At this meeting temporary officers were elected and a committee appointed to draft a constitution. A week later a meeting was called and the constitution adopted. The purpose of the society is to draw the members into a closer fellowship, to give the Civil Engineering Department more prominence and to provide pleasing and instructive entertainment for the members and the public. At the first regular meeting under the constitution the following officers were elected: R. M. Green, President ; H. M. Fishwood. Vice President; R. F. Lyman, Secretary; C. J. Wohlford. Treasurer, and T. E. Wood. Sergeant-at-Arms. The above officers were to hold office during the school year of 1913-14. A debate on the state licensing of engineers was given before the Engineering Society on October 15th. This was the first step taken along the line of student talks and proved very instructive. Other meetings of special interest were given. The sub- jects being as follows; " City Paving in Lincoln, " G. G. Robinson. " Engineering Specifications, " C. O. Marty.

The Pharmaceutical Society proposed to bring the students of pharmacy into close fellowship in a social way, feeling mutual acquaintance and understanding to be efficacious in promoting a feeling of professional kinship, the kinship which is the foundation of co-operation and its resultant progress. To this can be attributed, in large measure, the fact that in no other school or college in the University are the students so intimately acquainted with each other and with their instructors and so intensely enthusiastic in their work as are the students of pharmacy. It has been the purpose of the Pharmaceutical Society to devote much time to the consideration and discussion of items of contemporary interest along pharmaceutical lines and recognizing the fact that the association with men high in the profession would be one of the greatest influences in broadening the student and raising before him the high ideals which are essential to success, the Pharmaceutical Society early determined that opportunity should be offered to all the students of pharmacy to meet and know the members of the State Board of Pharmacy. The State Board meets in Lincoln in May of every year and the society tenders them a banquet at which all the students, as well as the State Board, are guests. The success which attended the giving of the first banquet justified in every way the continuance of the plan and accordingly has become established as an annual affair.

With this ideal in mind a banquet of equal standard with any held by the student body, both as to menu and general appointments, was held at the Lindell in the latter part of January. In the toasts presented there was offered the opportunity of an open forum for the discussion of topics of vital interest in the development of university life. These two ideals of cultured social life of men with men and the promo- tion of at least one meeting each year when students may come together to hear discussed with perfect freedom the problems confronting the student body afford a sufficient basis for a function of general university concern. Such a function should grow in traditional interest from year to year. In the personnel of those who responded to toasts and the representative character of the body of students attending and the variety of topics discussed, a sufficient guarantee is given of the all-university character of the function. 240 CornfMi«ftfr. 1014 g. il, C. , Cabinet Organized March 15th. 1882.

At the annual meeting of the Board last June the following committee was ap- pointed: Regent Allen, Chancellor Avery and Prof. Grumann. Through the instrumentality of Mrs. Raymond the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra was secured early last summer for two concerts on May 25th. When school convened last September C. B. Cornell was placed in charge as business man- ager. The University Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Raymond, will have a very important part in the Festival, presenting one heavy number with the orchestra and opening the series of con- certs with the opera, " II Trovatore, " in concert form. May 23d. As a preliminary to the Festival, a series of ten symphonies has been given at the Thursday Convocation pe- riod. That they have aroused a keen interest in this type of music is attested by the fact that they have been the best attended convocations of recent years. The aim of the committee is to pre- sent the Festival to the University public at cost. The price for " II Trova- tore, " May 23d. will be 25 cents for any seat. The mail order advance sale for the symphony concerts will be $1.00 and $1.50 for each concert. Special stu- dent tickets will be sold at the Regis- trar ' s office on May 15th at $1.50, good for any reserved seat at the Oliver for both symphony programs. 24A (Cornfjiisihrr. 1014 Cornfjusffecr, 1914 m)t Unibergitp (Girls ' Clulj HE UNIVERSITY Girls ' Club was organized about six years ago by a few M C loyal and broad-minded girls who saw the need of a more democratic spirit J among the girls of the University. The aim of the club is two-fold. The first purpose is to establish a loan fund for the use of girls who are working their way through school and for use in case a girl is ill and unable to pay hospital or doctors ' bills. The membership dues of the club are 35 cents per year and 25 cents of this sum is placed in the permanent loan fund. This loan fund is always in use, and although no note has ever been taken, the money has always been promptly returned. The second aim of the club is to offer an opportunity for friendly, helpful fellowship among all the girls of the University; to develop a feeling of mutual responsibility and a higher regard for both liberty and order, and to be a medium by which the social standard of the University may be made and kept high. Each succeeding year, since its organization, the club has increased in membership and spirit, until in this present year we have an organization of which every loyal Nebraska girl has reason to be proud. The active membership at the present time is over 400 and the girls expect each year to make the number larger, until every Uni- versity girl will feel that the Girls ' Club forms just as important a part of her college life as examinations and grades. The club has given several successful parties this year. The first event was a reception for freshman girls; the next was the football luncheon just before the Min- nesota game. Then came the most glorious success in the history of the Girls ' Club — the Cornhusker costume party, an event never to be forgotten. There the spirit of democracy reigned supreme and sturdy farmer lads in blue jeans with red bandannas danced with elegant ladies of fashion and a sister of charity in somber black tripped the light fantastic with a many pigtailed pickaninny " chile. " A very realistic football game followed by speeches from the team and " Jumbo " constituted the most novel features of the entertainment. The whole affair was a decided success and every girl there declared that she had had the time of her life. The three parties mentioned arc only a few of the many occasions which the Girls ' Club has provided this year for the purpose of giving all the University girls an oppor- tunity to meet together. Miss Graham ' s interest and hearty support has meant much to the club this year. Under the inspiration of her inlluence the girls are going to work even harder than in previous years for the interests of the club. So, the University Girls ' Club is bound to grow and prosper, and develop among the girls at Nebraska a spirit of unity, loyalty and good fellowship. 246 (Corntiu«Ufr.

IN 1S62 tlie Congress of the United States enacted laws whicli granted large tracts of land to the different states to he used in establishing colleges of industrial and mechanic arts, and imposed the condition that in accepting the grant the under- graduate students should be given instruction in military drill. This was the result of the lesson so bitterly learned at the outset of the Civil War, then waging. The lack of educated men with military training was a serious handicap to the government in the organization of volunteers. It was not until the war had progressed two years that the country had what could really be considered an army, which could and would do the things ordered by the commanders, and, it was only by tragic experience that the ofhcers learned the profession of arms. If the country had possessed a sufficient number of educated men with military training the Civil War would have been of shorter duration and thousands of lives would have been spared. To prevent a repeti- tion of such a condition in the future. Congress very wisely sought to have all college men possess some military training. It knew that this country would never maintain a large regular army and it sought in this way to organize a nucleus for a reserve force to draw upon in time of national peril. The Department of Military Science and Tactics at the University of Nebraska was established in 1875. in conformity with the laws of the United States. Hence it is obligatory upon the University to maintain this department as long as it receives the revenue (of about $100,000 a year) from the fund created by the sale of the land granted the state by the national government. It is not the purpose of this department to make regular soldiers or to create a military spirit among the people, but to create a military reserve of college men, who will continue in civil life, and yet be available as officers and non-commissioned officers when their country needs them. Military preparedness decreases the possibility of war. Xo one questions the wisdom of carrying insurance. Military preparedness is a form of insurance whicli guarantees our national integrity. Though the military profession is one of the oldest in history it has never been completely mastered 1)y any single individual. The officers of our regular army are required to be ever studying and perfecting themselves, not with the hope of war — for war to the army man means self-sacrifice just as it does to the civilian — but with the hope that, if tlie call comes, they will be ready to serve their country intelligently and effectively. We will always have a very small army in proportion to the size of our population and our large territory, so small, indeed, that it would not be more than the advance guard of the main body following in the rear, and the main bodj will be composed of volunteers. It is unnecessary to dwell upon the importance of having the volunteers well officered. The combination of a uniform, a sword, and a man does not necessarily resulr in an officer. A good officer must be able to teach his men how to march, must care for their health in camp and be able to lead them properly on the field of battle. In all our wars these lessons have been learned by the sacrifice of many lives. It is impossible in the short time allotted to our department to turn out fully trained officers. But we can inculcate some of the necessary principles governing military actions, teach the rudiments of the profession and put the student in the way of obtaining further information. Every cadet is benefitted in many ways by military drill. He becomes a more efficient and valuable citizen, a military asset, and a protector of his country. He betters his own condition physically and mentally. United States army regulations require that military authority be exercised with firmness, kindness and justice. Disci- pline is essential in all military work, it requires a man to be at a certain place at a certain time to do the things required by superiors with exactness and without hesitation or question. To resort to the vernacular, a man must be " on the job " all the time. Attention to detail, alertness of mind, proper carriage in standing and in walking, courtesy and straight-forwardness, precision — these qualities give self-assurance, inspire self-respect, develop latent abilities, and bring out the best that is in a man. These are a few of the benefits, physical and mental, of the military department. But, greatest of all, is the instilling of a deeper and more active form of patriotism. E. N.

Laurence Eos.sler and H. K. Wolfe. The first Commandment of Cadets was Lieutenant Edgar S. Dudley of the artillery branch of the service, who had graduated from West Point subsequent to service as a volunteer officer in the Civil War. He arrived at the University in the fall of 1876. One company of cadets was organized with W. A. McAllister, 77, as Captain: Allen W. Field, 77. as l ' " irst Lieutenant, and E. I ' . Holmes, 78, as .-Vdjutant. The name of the second lieutenant cannot be stated. With the e.NCeption of Captain John Brcr- benbaugh in 1879-80, and . djutant Clement Champion Chase in 18t(2-3, the names of other officers prior to 1884 cannot be given. Chase is said to have been the most splendid officer of the early period. During the first year. 1876-77, drill was voluntary and uniforms were not required or worn. Everytliing was therefore lovely. .At the opening of the following year it was announced tliat uniforms would be reijuired. A considerable number of students protested against this order, the protest finally assuming the form of a threatened revolt. The faculty met the situation by providing for two companies, one in uniform and one in civilian garl). Tlie insurrectos in general looked upon this move of the faculty as checkmating them, and proceeded meekly to drill. Side remarks relative to this event and time .ire to tlie following effect: Magoon, ringleader, was the first to capitulate; .Mercer played politics. Wolfe, with a perfectly good reason for e. cuse from drill, declined to avail himself of it. and joineil the insurrectos " on principle. " Eossler, not an insurrecto. had provided himself with uniform, but mixed up the maneuvers of his company to such an extent that he was relegated to the " raganuiffin squad " ; Caldwell was one of the most formidable of the rebels, but accepted defeat with becoming grace. Verily, the boy is father to the man. During the period treated there was a two-year preparatory school connected with the University and many students discharged the drill requirement during their " prep " years. Thus it soon came about that the comniissions were largely held by under- classmen and " preps. " In the year 18X4-85 Captains George O. Hearn of Company A, Roscoe Pound, Ordnance Officer, and Lieutenant Veyne Chaiuller were " second preps. " Lieutenants I ' Vank A. Manley and II. P. Mathewson. Jr.. were freshmen, Lieutenant Roy Codding a sophomore, and Captain James R. Force of Company H a junior. In the fall of 1887 the battalion included a sufficient number of cadets to justify a third company, and Company C was formed, with Jared G. Smith, ' 88, as Captain. Company D was organized and drilled in the spring of 1888. Captain, Nettie Clennan; I ' irst Lieutenant, .Mma Benedict; Second Lieutenant, May Tibbies; l " irst Sergeant, Louise Pound. Lieutenant Dudley was succeeded as Commandant by Lieutenant Isaac T. Webster. I ' ollowing the term of Lieutenant Webster there was a period during which the War Department made no detail of an officer to Nebraska and the Regents engaged Lieu- tenant Richard N. Townley, a retired officer of the navy, resident of Lincoln, as Com- mandant. In the spring of 1885 Lieutenant Dudley entered upon his second detail, which embraced an era of distinctly good feeling. .Any discussion, however brief, of this early perio»l would be incomplete without a tribute to the character of Lieutenant Dudley as an officer, citizen ami friend. O. V. P. STOUT. ' 88. 250 ContlniBihrr. 1014 nr The Middle Period W ' EXTV-SRVEN yciirs have wroiiglit great development in the Military Dcpart- I nient of the University. New legislation hy Congress cfnitinuallj ' encouraging greater interest in military education, liheral appropriations from the state, and closer affiliation with the state and national military organizations has developed the department from almost nothng in 1887 to one of importance in the University at the present time. In 1887 Lieutenant E. S. Dudley, with the greatest difficulty, maintained tlie department in two ordinary class rooms at the northeast corner of the first floor of Universit}- Hall. Lieutenant Dudley was an artillery officer, and it was through his efforts that two field pieces were added to the equipment. Artillery drill was not required, but " volunteers " were many and practice was sufficient to warrant the firing of a salute on every noteworthy occasion. The smell of burning gun-powder seemed to be a great stimulant to the enthusiasm and attendance in the artillery branch of the service. Lieutenant Griffith succeeded Lieutenant Dudley as Commandant. He was a more rigid disciplinarian than Lieutenant Dudley and did much for tlie development of the military bearing of the men. Grant Memorial Hall was completed during his term and the greatly improved facilities and much newer equipment stirred the enthusiasm of cadets. He turned the department, in a flourishing condition, over to his successor. Lieutenant, now General, John J, Pershing. It was Lieutenant Pershing who did more than anj ' other one man in raising the military standard. He was a disciplinarian — all discipline all the time. He encouraged the organization of Company A and secured its entry in the National Competitive Drill at Omaha in 1892, where the company won first place, receiving a cash prize and the Omaha cup. This victory, and the keen rivalry that he developed between officers and companies for prizes and promotions, raised the standard to a point where every student was proud to be a " cadet. " Many students began to hold over in the department in order to secure officer ' s commissions. Since Pershing ' s time it has been necessary for a man to enter as a freshman and work up to secure a captaincy. It was in Lieutenant Pershing ' s time that I graduated and left the L niversity. It was five years later, in 1898, during the Spanish-American war, wdien I had occasion to see the real and practical value of the University ' s military training. There were a large number of old University of Nebraska cadets in the ranks of the First Nebraska Volunteers. Without exception they were promoted and " made good " in every station assigned to them. Many were raised from the ranks to commissioned officers, and no small share of the credit for the superior e.xcellence of record of that regiment is due to the University men on its muster roll. The government is pursuing a wise policy in encouraging the development of military training in all of our leading universities. The amount of work in this depart- ment should be increased rather than lessened and none should be excused from its requirements. The lessons of discipline and the teaching of proper respect for consti- tuted authority, as well as the improved physical carriage and bearing, are of great value to the student in civil life. And. in the event of war, he can render most valuable assistance to his country. FRANK D. EAGER, ' 93. Cortrfjufiifecr, X914 2Si Officers ' Club 252 Cornfiutfftrr, 1014 Reorganization and Growth 1901-1914 A }n STORY of the Military Depnrtmciit of the University may well he considered as covering three distinct periods. These periods might he divided as fidlows: 1876-1898, " Birth and Organization " ; 1898-1901, " The War Period, " during which time the cadet hattalion was in a disrupted condition; 1901-1914, " Reorganization and Growth. " It will be the purpose of tliese few lines to chronicle only a few of the principal facts having to do witli the last named period. During the Spanish-American w,ir it was impossible for the War Department to detail an officer of the regular army as commandant of cadets at any educational institu- tion. Cadet majors, who had received their entire military education in the University Military Department or Nebraska National Guard, were chosen by the University regents to have charge of the department. In spite of their good work, many of the best line and staff officers having enlisted in Nebraska volunteer regiments, the efficiency of the Military Department was not increased until at the close of the war times. Lieutenant-Colonel Frank D. Eager, First Nebraska U. S. V., was chosen as temporary commandant to serve until the arrival of Captain Samuel A. Smoke, Fifth United States Infantry, who had been assigned to the Nebraska Post. Commandant Eager brought " pep " and inspiration to the men enrolled. He began a reorganization which was fol- lowed up closely by Captain Smoke and his successor, Captain Wilson Chase, Twenty- first United States Infantry. Captain Workizer came to the University in the summer of 1905. He placed the demerit system upon a rigid basis. Many cadets offered the assertion that " he was all demerits. " It was Captain Workizer who abolished the old blue uniform for the more serviceable olive drab field suits. Company I was formed in 1908. When Captain Halsey E. Yates, Seventeenth United States Infantry, came to Nebraska as commandant in 1909, he came to his own Alma Mater. In his home city he set about on progressive policy of growth. He did away with the misuse of reprieves. Nothing but a first-class excuse could cause him to sanction a reprieve from drill. His strict adherence to this policy so increased the number of enlisted men that during his three-year term as commandmant four new companies were formed. These were K, M, E and F companies. He also abolished all " snaps, " doing away with company clerks and the hospital corps. A rifle company was organized and regular range and indoor practice began. Our present commandant, Lieutenant Everett N. Bowman, First Lieutenant Fourth United States Infantry, will take his place in military annals at Nebraska as the man who put " system " into the afTairs of the department, bringing it to its highest point of efficiency. He has succeeded in severing politics or " pull " from military science. Through careful study he has been able to make promotions with a minimum of recom- mendation upon the part of cadet officers. Lieutenant Bowman knows every officer, either commissioned or non-commissioned, by name, calling him by rank and name each time he meets him. In losing the present commandant, in the spring, Nebraska will send back to the regular army service a man loved and respected by his men, a popular commandant, efficient in his service for the University of Nebraska.

Always a progressive organ- izatiini, the men of this company have been loyal to the principles of militarism and liave always stood for the lionor of the University cadets. W. .A. Mc.Mlister, 77, was the first captain of tlie company, guiding it tlirough its infancy willi success. On three great annual gala days has this company won the Omaha cup at " Conipet. " In 1901 Captain H. A. Tukey led his men to victory, in 1904 Captain E. D. Stanley was the victorious captain, and four years later the company honor was upheld by a staunch comiiany led by Captain H. S. Stevens. Among the many men of prominence who have helped officer Company A may be counted in the following; Dean Roscoe Pound, who served Xebraska for years and is now at the helm in Harvard Law College; Ex-Governor George L.

Company B THE HISTORY of illustrious Company B readies back to the fall of 1877, it being formed of " insurrectos " who drilled only under protest. Soon, however, Lieutenant E. S. Dudley, who was the first commandant of cadets, was able to instill " pep " and military bearing into the young soldiers who became patriotic cadets. At the time the regents issued the first ultimatum, " Uniforms Required, " the men of the original Company B were anything but enthusiastic, but soon the clouds floated awaj ' , patriotism won out and navy blue with white stripes and brass buttons were in evidence. And from that day to the present the men of " B " have been lovers of the uniform which it is their honor to wear. On four bright " Compct " days Company B has won the cup. In 1S94, under Cap- tain J. B. Dixon, they were victorious, the following year Captain C. . . Elliott led his men to victory and in 1897 laurels were gained with C. R. Saxton as Captain. Xo " compet " was held in 1898, it being the initial year of the Spanish-American war, but in 1899 Company B again won the cup, Captain J. Stebbins being in command of the company. Every j-ear good old Company B strives to win and shows up as among the best, but since 1899 have been unable to reach their goal — the cup. Among the many men of prominence who have been officers of the company may be counted the following: judge C. S. Lobinger, who has for years represented the United States in the Philippine Islands; L. A. Rickctt, J. Dean Ringer, attorney at South Omaha; Robert T. Guthrie, now an officer in the United States army; S. A. Mahood and Richard Guthrie, now in the United States Forestry Service. Captain Victor A. Sturm and Lieutenant E. R. Jones are in charge of the company this year and are receiving loyal support from their men. All are working together " For the Honor of ' B ' and the University.

The company was organized in the fall of 1887 with the following oflicers: Captain, " Jerry " Smith; First Lieutenant, H. P. Mathew- son, and Second Lieutenant, O. V. Stout. Us history has been one of patriotism, " pep " and progress. When camps were established as an annual outing for cadets it was Company C which gained prominence because of the many keen " wits " among its men and ofhcers. Not least among these " live wires " may be counted Captains Charles E. Teach and Charles A. I ' ennctt. In " Compet " the Company C men held the coveted " C-C-C-u-p. " In 1006 Captain L. C. Syford led the company in " compet, " the following year the x ' ictory was due to the cool-headed work of Captain C. D. SlauglUcr, while tlie last victory was won witli Captain " Chick " Bennett in command. Among the prominent men who ha e served as commissioned officers in the com- pany may be counted the following: Dean O. V. P. Stout, C.

Spaulding, with the aid of First Lieutenant J. V. Johnson, guided this company through its first year of existence during the regime of Com- mandant Yates. The reason for the organization of this company in 1911 was that the registration of the University had developed to such an extent that the old companies had more men to handle than was practicable. Another reason was that Commandant Yates was determined to stamp out the old reprieve policy. IMen were held to extraordinary excuses before reprieve was granted. Captain Miller of this year ' s company is being ably assisted by William H. Bauman, his First Lieutenant.

The object in bringing this organiza- tion to life was identical with the reasons for the organization of the twin sister company. A large number of students were on the list for drill because of the increased attendance and strict adherence to his non-reprieve policy by the commandant. Captain F. A. Wirt was in charge of this infant and C. L. Yochum was First Lieutenant. Professor Wirt is now using the tactics acquired in the Military Depart- ment to make the students of Manhattan College mark time to his tune. W. W. Wenstrand, president of the senior class in 1912-1913, also led Company F over the rocks of trials and tribulation the same year. Captain R. A.

Company I COM PAX Y I was born in 1909, during tlie last year of the regime of Captain Jolm G. Workizcr as Commandant, and came to the front rapidly. Its ambition was ever high; its officers from the start were men of highest standards and nothing but success could have been its reward. So faithfully did the men enter into the spirit of drill that in the third year of its existence, being second full drill year, this new company, under the leadership of Captain H. L. Cain, was able to take second place in " Compet. " The following year, 1912, bore fruit — Captain C. K. Paine led his men to victory and the cup. Although the history of Company I has been short, a number of its officers have been promoted to staff positions and to captaincy of new companies. Lieutenant F. A. Wirt became first Captain of Company F, and in the same year Lieutenant J. B. Spaulding became first Captain of Company E. Captain C. K. Paine became Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment and Captain J. V. Johnson of last year is now Major-in-Charge of the second battalion. Among the other prominent men who have officered Company I may be counted J. A. Scotney, W. E. Byerts and M. E. Barker. Reed B.

ROHRBAUGH, Captain. MISS HELEN HEATOX, Sponsor, Company K COMPANY K is one of the four companies born during the regime of Captain H. E. Yates as Commandant of Cadets. Owing to the elimination of " fake e.xcuses " from drill it was necessary for Captain Yates to organize new companies in order to give all men opportunity for the best sort of instruction. So it might properly be said that Company K was forced upon the University. The welcome infant company was officered in its first year by Captain H. W. Coulter, First Lieutenant F. E. Rhode and Second Lieutenant A. M. Hare. Last year the sting of defeat in former years was forgotten when the entire regiment congratulated " K " upon a brilliant victory on the day of annual judgment. Captain C. B. Perry, supported by Lieutenants L. A. Townsend and E. E. Frost, reached the pinnacle of fame for their company, it being proclaimed the best drilled company of the regiment. Captain L C. Rohrbaugh is in charge of Company K this year. His men are working with a vim, determined to win again in 1914 the cup which they prize so highly.

At this unearthly hour of the night in camp at Ashland, Captain H. E. Yates sent an orderly after V. O. Foreman, First Lieutenant of Company A, asking him to report at headquarters. Bewildered and wondering which of his pranks was causing him to be called " upon the carpet " he entered. He was offered the captaincy of a new company, other officers were chosen and on the very next day the order was read adding to the regiment a tiny company composed of three com- missioned officers and two sergeants. Recruits were not mustered until the follow- ing fall. Company M has worked hard. It has never won " Compet, " but its Glee Club in camp at Beatrice in 1911 will never be forgotten by any who attended tlie camp, par- ticularly by the men of Companies I and K, which were encamped nea rby. The company has turned out some mighty strong men, among them being V. O. Foreman, H. C. Slater, A. W. Dewey and Edward Hewalt, who is now in educational work at Grand Island. Captain M. V. Reed and Lieutenant J. E. Allison are drilling the company this year. If the company stands as high in the day of final tests as does its worthy Captain in the hearts of his men, it will be mighty near on top, if not the very top company. Cornfjusifecr, 1914 285 The Band 286 Cornliufihrr. 1014 The Band THE BAND was founded primarily as a University organization and did not come under the control of the Military Department until in the eighties. Since that time it has been a very valuable adjunct to the Military Department. In camp its chief distinction was that the members of the Band slept all day, and played, in more than one sense, all night. For the past three years the organization has been under the direction of Major C. B. Cornell. Under his leadership it has developed into one of Nebraska ' s big institutions and an organization which benefits not only the regiment, but the whole University. It furnishes music on all occasions and accompanies the football team into foreign fields. This year the Band made a very successful tour of the state during spring vacation. In addition it has played for several outside functions in the city. Thus it is perhaps as well and as widely known as any University organization. Captain Sullivan, assisted by Lieutenants Kovanda and Wagner, has developed the forty members of the Band into a very efficient organization, both from a military and musical standpoint.

NEBRASKA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF MEDICINE, OMAHA. 300 Cornlmsrtifr, 1014 €:f)e College of iHebicine " The Western College for the Western Man. " Once a terribly trite phrase, newly become most forceful and germane to us all. The University of Nebraska College of Med- icine does perforce draw the bulk of its student body from the state of Nebraska. To the people of the state, then, to the par- ents of our students that are and to our students to be and to their families, as well as to our fellow students in the other col- leges of this great University — greeting. We have a message for you — a message of progress and achievement, and an appeal — an appeal not for financial support, for that you have already given us, but a moral ap- peal, the appeal of " The Western College for the Western Man. " Nebraska now has that to offer in medical education which will draw to her from all over the west the class of men who, satisfied with nothing but the best, formerly consid- ered it necessary to go east for their work. She can offer the latest mod- ern equipment, abundance of clinical material and in- structors of national repu- tation. The recent removal of all the medical work to Omaha, with the erection of modern quarters with a quantity of new equipment and the conse- quent stimulus and new lease of life to the clinical years marks the opening of a new epoch in the history of the college. The new laboratory building at Forty- second and Dewey Avenue, Omaha, is veritably our " piece de resistance. " Drs. Perkins, Sollman and Gerstenberger, from Western Reserve, after making a recent in- spection tour of practically all the large medical schools of the country, remarked, referring to our building, that Nebraska had practically the m.ost compact and efficient plant they had seen. The building has been erected at a cost of $110,000, $100,000 of which was appropri- ated by the legislature of 1912. It was dedi- cated October 16th, 1913, the dedicatory ad- dress being delivered by Dr. Howard A. Kelly of Johns Hopkins University. Three days previously, during the annual Alumni Clinical Week, the building was thrown open for a reception to alumni, students and friends. Let us take vou around a bit, and show you what our visitors saw. On the second or main floor as we go in are the offices — aristocratic offices — if you don ' t believe us just look at the picture and see for yourself. Across the hall is the Department of Clinical Pathology and the museum. Further on we turn into the west wing. At the far end is the assembly room, equipp ed, by the way, with a $600 projection lantern and a $500 dark curtain outfit, so that lectures may be illustrated in the most effective manner. The rest of the wing is occupied by the laboratories, office, store rooms and dark room of the Depart- ment of Pathology and Bacteriology. Let us go up to the third floor. Here, above the offices we find the library. On the other side of the hall the Department of Chem- istry, where the Freshmen make vile odors. In the corner is a lecture room. The west wing is taken up by the |3 Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, with its office, laboratories, ma- il chine shop, dark room and the wonderful electrocar- deogram, a Cambridge J string galvanometer, the like of which is found only m two or three other schools in the United States. Now for the fourth floor. Here is the " Exhibit A " of every medical col- lege — the Department of Anatomy. The dissecting room is beyond a doubt the most sanitary and best equipped of its kind in the country. Look at the picture, read the description in the new catalog and be convinced. The of- fices and private laboratories of anatomy occupy the rest of the south wing. In the corner is another lecture room. In the west wing is the Department of Histology with its office, laboratories and smaller rooms. Another flight of stairs takes you to the roof, frorn where you can get a good view of a considerable part of the cyclone-swept district of last year. The latter, however, has not much to do with medical education, so we will go down. Before we leave we must visit the ground floor. Here in the south wing is the girls ' rest room. Across the hall is the office of the college paper, " The Pulse. " Here also the Anatomy Department has store rooms, preparation and autopsy rooms, and in the corner is the animal room. The west wing is taken up with the men ' s quarters, a loung- ing and smoking room, a large locker room and a bath room with showers. Some build- ing, isn ' t it? Cornf)U£t er, 1914 301 Just west of the building are our tennis courts, better than most courts, rivaled only by the Omaha Field Club courts. We have a Tennis Association, named after Dr. Har- old Gifford, to whom we are indebted for the equipment of the courts. Hospitals. The college has practical con- trol of all charity cases in six different large modern hospitals in Omaha. Of these, one hospital alone, the Nebraska Methodist, has out of a total of 2,600 cases yearly, 825 char- ity cases, and these with a number of non- charity cases are available for teaching. At the Free Medical Dispensary during the first six months of the present school year 5,011 cases were seen by the students. Twenty-five physicians and surgeons, lead- ers of their profession in Omaha, comprise the Dispensary Staff. Nebraska can offer what many larger schools cannot, close per- sonal contact with our big men. Our faculty believe in and practice individual bedside teaching rather than mass class room teaching. Nebraska appeals to the best class of medical students, and she bases her appeal on the possession of superior laboratory equipment, an excellent faculty, abundance of clinical material, unity of work, all four years in the same place, and location in a large city. We are thankful to the people of the state for having given us. through their legis- lature, such a college. People of the state will and do feel thankful to the college for turning out the class of medical men whom our graduates represent. " The Western School for the Western Man.

Students using the waste pails for cus- pidors must tip the janitor. 3. Only twenty-five students are allowed to wash up at one time. 4. All students must laugh out loud when the Prof, tells a story or cracks a joke. This rule absolute. 5. Students may visit one another, nc calling cards being necessary. Dissecting room motto, " Everything comes at him who works. " WHAT WE COST THE STATE. How many of us, who pay from $100 to $120 per year in tuition and fees, realize how much the state must add in cold, hard cash to put each of us through? Probably we have not even paused to give the matter a passing thought. For running expenses and maintenance only, not considering cost of equipment or depreciation, each student costs this state $542. Small wonder we are expected to make good or get out. Beginning with the school year of 1914-1915, the Seniors will spend a certain amount of time in filling clinical clerkships. A student on this service will spend two hours of each day for a period of six weeks at a certain hospital. He will have access to the histories, charts and all the records of every patient in charge of the staff, and will be expected to follow each case carefully from day to day. While on this service he will not be on dispensary service. This will be an uncommon and valuable opportunity for intelligently following the work of our big men. —The Pulse.

It was a happy discovery, fostered by the exigencies of dire necessity, on the part of some ingenious cuss who early roamed the forests, that music has charm to soothe the savage beast. Accordingly in our present state of civilization we carry out that idea, and with some success, by placing a brass band around the bulldog ' s neck. Perceiv- ing the quality of the first inference in their student body and believing as they do in the descent of man from that bestial state, our faculty instituted a plan which would with impunity satisfy our savage passion for combat. Convinced by the observations of the aforesaid aborigine that music was es- sential, they decided unon tennis. Dr. Gif- ford was successfully appealed to..

Among the papers of R. H. Stoddard that Rysley Hitchcock edited there is a letter which Oliver Wendell Holmes, the poet physician, is said to have received. This letter was written many years ago by an ignorant country practitioner, and it is interesting because it shows the low level to which, in the early part of the last century, it was possible for medical education to fall. The letter, verbatim, follows: " Dear dock I have a pashunt whos physicol sines shoze that the winpipe is ulcerated of and his lung have dropped into his stumick. He is unable to swaller and I fear his stumick is gone. I have giv him everything without efeck his Father is wealthy honorable and influenshail. He is an active member of the M. E.

Corntnidher, 1014 • x II llr Cte ogmet i lufj CHE KOSMET Klub of the University of Nebraska is an organization whose visible activity is the production of an original musical play each year. The aim of the Klub is to encourage dramatic and musical composition among the students, to add its mite toward elevating the forms of popular amusement and to furnish clean and wholesome recreation, both for those who take part and for those who attend its entertainments. The Kosmet Klub was organized in May. 1911. the charter members hav- ing in mind similar organizations, such as the " Triangle " Club at Princeton, the " Boar ' s Head " Club at Syracuse, the " Black Friars " Club at Chicago and the " Hare ' s Foot " Club at the University of Wisconsin. Membership in the Klub is by election, and is limited to twelve upper classmen, although the cast of the annual production is open to the entire school. In 1912 " The Diplomat, " a political satire, in two acts, by Prof. R. D. Scott, with music by C. L. Connor. ' 13. was presented at the Oliver Theater. In 1913 " The Matchmakers. " also by Prof. Scott, with music by Miss Dorothy Wat- kins, ' 13, was given. This year, on May 16th, the Klub will offer its annual production, the play chosen being " El Presidente. " by Ernest H. Graves, ' 13, the music composed by Miss Agnes Bartlett, ' 15, and the lyrics by Ralph H. Northrup, ' 14. ROLL OF MEMBERS. HONORARY. Prof. R. D. Scott Mr. C. L. Connor ACTIVE. John L.

' Because things seen are mightier than things heard, the theater has become a factor, not only in the world of pleasure and philanthropy, but in the educational realm. To society it is distinctly a source of amusem.ent. to the denizen of the slums it opens a wonderful world of fantasy and becomes a means of mental and spiritual stimulation, to the educator it is the lan- guage democratic, universal through which he is to speak to all men. By appealing to the common desire to be amused, and to the love of play, both of which are inherent in mankind and through the strong appeal to the emotional nature, which Mathew Arnold says is " two-thirds of the life of a human being, " the educator awakens the sympathies to interests lying beyond the personal experience of the be- holder. He trains his audience unconsciously along the lines of higher literature, devel- oping a sense of the artistic in those things which appeal to the eye and to the ear and. far greater than these, he appeals to one ' s sense of the right, the just, the true, and thus he gives the greatest culture that education can hope to give — the cultivation of the nobler impulses of the heart. It is along these lines that the dramatic work of the University hopes to finds its usefulness. Opening the Temple Theater a few years ago with Bernard Shaw ' s " You Never Can Tell " the Dramatic Club has been endeavoring to touch its work with upward impulse; plays by Fitch, Pinero, Barrie, Ibsen and Shakespeare have been presented. But even our University audi- ence does not care to go much deeper into the profound problems of Ibsen than " The Pillars of Society " ; " The Master Builder " and " Rosmersholm " must wait. Mr. Rich- ard Barton of the University of Minnesota has said: " We must lure one away from the musical comedy and vaudeville and moving pictures by the via media of dreams like " The Man From Home " or " The Fortune Hunter " or even — if you do not tell too much about its inaffability in advance — " The Servant in the House. " The Cosmet Club, under the guidance of Prof. R. D. Scott, has put on two very suc- cessful musical comedies of his writing and this year is to produce its own original work. The classes in play writing are turning out commendable pieces of work. It is our hope that really meritorious plays, thus written, may be presented by our own stu- dents, and the intention also is entertained of producing from time to time some of the classical Greek, German and French dramas. It is with feelings of high aspirations that in ringing the curtain down on the dramatic work of the past we hope to ring it up each year for the interpretation of nobler liter- ature and greater works of art.

" — Hamlet, 110-2. lord ; they stay upon your Cornfjusfecr, 1914 317 IDljp 3s a Senior $lap aNLIKE the Junior play, the Senior play is an old tradition at Nebraska. How and why the custom began we will not consider. It is only necessary to say that we have it and that it prevailed this year as usual. Theoretically, a Senior play is the crowning glory, from the standpoint of art. of the career of a class. Four years ' study of literature, elocution and the classics have prepared the class to present a masterpiece in a manner worthy of such an institution. It is a presentation representative, not so much of what the school does for those specializing in dramatics, as of what it does for the student body as a whole. Thus is the Senior play analyzed by those afar off. The actual fact, however, is quite different. Each class goes through its four years of school life with its own unique experiences. It depends on the Senior play to do much toward rounding out its career. The question of talent, of finances, of the style of other plays of the year, all enter in to influence the selection of the play. This year the Senior class faced a situation anything but encouraging. Its Junior play had been a failure; it had put the class in debt and was not received well by the public. It was a well-known fact that the class had no great amount of all-round dra- matic ability. The committee in charge had. therefore, to select a play by which the class could pay off its debt and in which the characters were such as could be played by the known talent of the class. They had also to consider the demand among a certain class of people for a play of the classical type. Don Ahrens was made chairman of the committee and Guy Kiddoo the business manager. Five other members of the class, whose experience had made their opinion valuable, were later called in for consultation. After several months of search and delib- eration the committee was unable to agree on what play to give. They had, however, reduced the choice to two plays, Shakespeare ' s " Twelfth Night " and " The Fortune Hunter. " Each was representative of a type, one the classic type and the other the modern, strictly American, " hit. " " The " Twelfth Night " had much to commend it. Its production would have met the approval of a small but influential class of people who believe that such a play is the only kind a Senior class of a great institution of this kind should give. The right to play it would cost nothing; there would be practically no scenery expense; but there would be a large expense for costumes. On the other hand, " The Fortune Hunter " contained characters for each of which the class had a competent actor. Its presentation would fully redeem the ill-fated " Nathan Hale. " The expense for scenery would not be large, and for costumes nothing. But there was one thing to its disadvantage — it would cost a royalty of $100 to put it on. An amateur production is attended largely for two reasons: From a sense of social duty or for a personal interest in those taking part. But there are circumstances under which one will neglect his duty and forego the pleasure of seeing his friends in amateur v ork, chief among which is where the play is one not thoroughly enjoyable. This rea- son, under ordinary circumstances, would not be sufficient to justify a class in deserting the classics. But where a class is so situated that financial success is absolutely neces- sary, their play must be one which the University public will be glad to attend. These were the facts which confronted the class when the case was laid before them by the committee. Their choice by a very large majority was " The Fortune Hunter. " They considered that the difference in the sale of tickets would be sufficient to more than overcome the $100 royalty, an expenditure which seemed to many of the unin- formed useless. Thus it was that the Seniors made their selection. It was through no lack of dra- matic appreciation, nor did it come as an attempted innovation. But the selection was the result of conditions peculiar to this class alone, conditions which the class had to face, since they could not be avoided, and the results justified the class " selection in every particular. 318 Cornfiusrttfr, 1014 ' e Fortune Hunter STORY OF THE PLAY. Nate Duncan, a dissipated New Yorker, broke and discouraged, is tired of sponging on his acquaint- ances. His successful friend, Harry Kellogg, advises him to go to a small town and marry an heiress. Nat agrees, and Kellogg gives him rules to live by, guar- anteed to win him a million. Nat ' s attempts to follow these rules makes the fun of the play. He succeeds, however, — goes to church, stops swearing, smoking, gambling; gets work in a tumble-down drug store run by a simple- hearted old inventor, Sam Graham, and traps the wealthy banker ' s daughter, as per the rules, who finally proposes to him. In the meantime, however, he comes to like work, makes a success of the drug store, keeps a promoter from stealing a valuable invention from kindly Sam Graham, and falls in love with Betty Graham. The play ends in a rain storm, — happily, of course. CAST OF CHARACTERS. Nat Duncan, the Fortune Hunter R.

Each actor seemed to look the part in every-day life and was sufficiently posted in dramatic art to round out the part for a masterful production. To select those who were ' stars is but to reprint the cast. " Rockie " Amerman was by no means unknown to the student body. As a portrayer of certain type characters he has never been excelled in the school ' s history. His work in " The Fortune Hunter " proved his ability to handle some- thing other than the type in which we had been used to seeing him. He carried the audience always with him, through rapid change from the serious to the comic, from dramatic interpretations to funny antics. His work was a fitting climax to his four years of University dramatics. Next to Nat Duncan must come Sam Graham. This difficult part was car- ried by Guy Williams. The old druggist, who believed everything would come out all right, is the popular favorite of the play. He has your sympathy from the time he first appears until the end, where he holds the umbrella over the happy lovers in the rain. Guy ' s interpretation of the part secured for him the reputation of being one of the best actors of old men ' s parts the school has had. Betty Graham, the chief reason why the plan did not work, was played by Marion Preece. Her part was that of the sweet, pretty girl, plain and simple in her first appearance, but attractive and refined in the last act, after her career at school. Long experience and specialization enabled Miss Preece to present the part in a most pleasing manner. Hugh Agor played the part of the serious, earnest, systematic business man with vigor. Isabel Coons presented the part of the girl with the million very cleverly, and you wonder indeed why Nat is opposed to the idea of taking her and her millions. Dwight Griswold, in the part of the village fat boy, was a popular favorite. He made the most of a lot of delicious humor. Vivian Cleaver deserves special mention as Angle. Her work was of a very high class. Dunaway, as the traveling salesman. Brown as the sheriff, Chatt as the self-important bank clerk, Diers and Chase as the village cronies, all deserve special mention.

QUESTION— Resolved, That Immigration Into the United States Should Be Further Restricted by Means of a Literacy Test. DECISION— Two to one for Nebraska. Cornftiisfeer, 1914 327 cljatiug; Nebraska had another splendid year in the field of debating. Both the affirmative and negative teams won decisive victories over their opponents. The affirmative team annexed a 2 to 1 decision over Minnesota at Lincoln, while the negative team at Iowa City defeated Iowa by the unanimous ver- dict of the judges. The victory over Min- nesota was especially gratifying, because it was the first time in history that we re- turned winners over the Northerners. However, it was only in line with the de- feats we handed Minnesota in football and basketball. The verdict over Iowa was like- wise pleasing to Nebraskans who were pres- ent at Iowa ' s victory over us two years ago. The question debated this year in the conference was: " Should Immigration Into the United States Be Further Restricted By Means of a Literacy Test? " All angles of the question were well threshed out in seminary. The affirmative team was com- posed of Hewett, Dawson. Prince and Good, and the negative team of Kirk, Sorenson, Perrin and Schwab. While too much credit cannot be given to the members of the teams, still, undoubt- edly, the lion ' s share of the glory falls upon Prof. M. M. Fogg. Starting the year with only four veterans of last year ' s seminary, of which but two were team men, he welded two powerful teams. The squad contained fewer veterans than any of the preceding thirteen which Professor Fogg has con- ducted during his long and eminently suc- cessful career at this University. He admitted that it was the greenest, and con- sequently it must have been one of the poorest squads ever assembled. Yet in ten weeks time Professor Fogg whipped to- gether two teams, to the strength of which both Minnesota and Iowa will bear wit- ness to. Summarizing the results of the debating teams in recent years, we find that during the last two years Nebraska has won all four of her debates with the total votes of the judges standing 10 to 2 in her favor; while in the last four years she has won six of the eight contests with the judges ' votes totalling 16 to 8 in her favor. Thus it seems safe to say that we will always have good and successful debating teams as long as Professor Fogg is with us. Prof. Foge — " Turn to your machinery, Mr. Perrin. Right away, Mr. Perrin; right away. " Perrin — " Brought my brains, professor; brought my brains. " A NIGHT IN THE DEBATING SEMINARY. Professor Fogg— " Well! Well! It ' s 7:45. Let ' s get the machinery of this course in operation. Let ' s see. ah, we all are heyah. Hm! Hm! All heyah except Mistah Beard. Anyone know if Mistah Beard is still taking this course? Well! Well! Are there any " send fors " tonight? " Mr. Hewett — " Professor Fogg, have you sent for that material about the Canadian immigration? " Professor Fogg (hastily) — " No! No! No! No! I was busy today, but will see to it the first thing tomorrow. Did any member find anything of interest in today ' s reading? " Mr. Waring — " I found some stuff on the percentage of criminality among immigrants which was pretty interesting. " Professor Fopg — " Be more explicit. Be more explicit. Who was the author? What was its worth? " Mr. Waring — " Well, you see, I didn ' t re- member the author, but the stuff sounded pretty good to me, and — " Professor Fogg — " Write the reference to the man it concerns: we can ' t afford to take the time of sixteen men. What is it, Mr. Dawson? " Mr. Dawson — " Whata we goin ' to do — " Professor Fogg — " Not goin ' — go-wing, Mr. Martin? " Mr. Martin — " You can ' t tell me anything about these new immigrants. I worked on the section for six months with a bunch of these Eye-talians — " Professor Fogg — " Utili-talians. Mr. Mar- tain, Italians. " (Mr. Beard meanders in) — " Well, Mr. Beard, a little late? " Mr. Beard — " Yes, I stopped to talk with the red-haired librarian at the reserve desk and — " Professor Fogg — " How much of your re- port have you completed? " Mr. Beard (airily) — " Oh, I ' ve got a good share of it done. " Professor Fogg — " Just how much? " Mr. Beard — " Well, I haven ' t so much done, but I know where to find the ma- terial. " Professor Fogg — " Where can you find it? " Mr. Beard (after a pause) — " I don ' t know. " Professor Fogg — " How much have you actually done? " Mr. Beard — " I haven ' t started yet. " (Loud and boisterous lawfter from the class.) Mr. Hewett— " Here ' s what Professor Jinks — " Professor Fogg — " Jenks. Mr. Hewett, Jcnks. " Mr. Sorenson — " Listen to what Dr. Eliott of Harvard says — " 328 €ornlMi«hfr. 1014 " Battleax " Prince — " Yes. Father Abra- ham, but is he authority — ? " Mr. Hewett — " I maintain that the author- ity of Dr. Jenks is greater than that emanat- ing from the classic elms of old Hahvahd. " (Several members collapse). Mr. Schwab — " Yes, but Dr. Eliott is not to be — " Professor Fogg — " Don ' t talk through your nose, Mr. Schwab; don ' t talk through your nose! What makes you use that nasal twang when you talk? " Mr. Prince — " I ' m going home. " Professor Fogg — " Just a moment, Mr. Prince. If there is nothing further for discussion we ' ll adjourn. Remember, gen- tlemen. 7:15 tomorrow evening. Fine meet- ing, fi-ine meeting. Good-night, gentlemen. " Don ' t talk through your nose, Schwab; don ' t talk through THAT MALCOLM STUNT. Our victorious debating teams, after cleaning up Minnesota and Iowa in such a spectacular and at the same time in such a nonchalant manner, resolved to give the state at large some of the benefit accruing from such intensive study of the immigra- tion question. Accordingly, led by that vet- eran trainer of winning teams. Prof. M. M. Fogg, the team was conducted to the city of Malcolm and there, under the auspices of the Malcolm Literary Society, the issue was threshed about between the two teams. Perrin and Kirk of the " neg " team declined the issue, so Alternates Schwab and Good substituted. According to the testimony of the latter two the team was really strength- ened by the trip. It was scarcely a joy trip, for the schedule read as follows: Train leaves Lincoln 6 p. m., reach Malcolm 6:30; debate starts at 7 p. m.; return home at 9. " Classic Elms " Hewett led off for the " Aff " team thusly: " Ladies and gentlemen, immigration of illiterate southern Europeans is fostered by the great steamship com- panies. Do these illiterate immigrants come to this country in respect to an economic demand? No! These illiterate immigrants come over because they read the hand bills scattered by the steamship companies ' agents. " After the applause had died down, Mr. Hewett continued: " And how does this immigrant get here? How does he travel? He invariably travels steerage — think of traveling on cattle trains! " The remainder of the speech was sane. " Amherst " Good and " Wop " Dawson delivered flawless orations, and " Alvie " Sor- enson rose to refute the " Wops ' " statement that real wages were less now than fifteen years ago, since it was impossible to secure as many pounds of ham for a dollar now. Magnificent in his bearing, " Alvie " spoke out with his bell-like voice: " Ladies and gentlemen, the reason why you cannot buy as many pounds of ham for a dollar now as fifteen years ago is because there are fewer cows. " " Jake " Schwab now confronted the liter- ary assembly and in passionate accents de- manded: " What good is the literary test? What good does it do to enable us to speak twenty words in language 25,000 miles away? ( " Jake " had violated rule 23 of Pro- fessor Foggs ' instructions on ease, clear- ness and succinctness, for he had pulled an anti-climax.) " Battleax " Prince, the peerless masticator of that brand of chewing tobacco, next took the floor. Just as H. Aubrey reached that point where, as Disraeli said of Gladstone. " He was fairly intoxicated with the exuber- ance of his own verbosity, " he ruined his speech by a thoughtless remark. He was painting in glowing colors the wrongs of the laboring men who comprised the " army of the underpaid and underfed " when, losing the thread of his thought, he burst out in ringing accents: " Think of the money wasted every year on the hard working chorus girls by New York and Pittsburgh millionaires! " Let us mercifully end the discussion of this ill-fated attempt to enlighten the people on the immigration question. One absurdity being admitted, one must submit to all that follows. — Pope. The devil can quote Scripture for his pur- pose. — Bill Shakespeare. SAMPLE SEMINAR JOKE. (Very funny.) Two Weary Willies were seated on the shady side of a water tank, philosophizing on life in general. One picked up a scrap of paper and seemed for the moment ab- sorbed. Presently he looked up and said to his pal: " Did ye hear de nooze? Feller drowned in er vat o ' beer in Milwaukee!

REED The controversy concerning the harmful- ness of athletics has died because both sides have proved conclusively to themselves that no matter how fervid the argument that intercollegiate athletics continue to thrive and expand. Some ardent opponent in giv- ing up the battle against athletics said that like war he supposed that our intercollegi- ate athletics was a necessity and an expres- sion of our present civilization, but that the great future would prove that athletics is as barbaric as war. Ardent supporters of intercollegiate ath- letics on the other hand believe that as the militant spirit dies the athletic or desire for physical competition will grow. In order to consider the stability of our present athletic institutions we must first know how and why we happen to have intercol- legiate athletics. The old Greek ideal held up before us the man who was a perfect physical specimen. The man who was an intellectual wonder was not the hero of the Greeks, but the man who also, aside from having intellectual powers, could run the fastest, leap the farthest, lift the most, was their idol, and each year they set aside a time when the youth from all Greece could gather and match their strength. The Greek ideal of education has clung to our system throughout its history. In every college, as they developed athletes within their walls, there grew up the idea that it would be of great interest to match the most proficient individuals in different strength and agility tests. Gradually the modern games grew up, as football, baseball and, very recently, basketball. At the present time every col- lege town is kept in a hubbub by the shouts of cheering hordes of students encouraging their teams to victory, and every live citizen gets up earlier the next morning to read the results. Looking backward we can see that ath- letics have grown to their present place in our college curriculum through a most nat- ural course. First there was a desire for bodily development; after development there was a desire to match the powers of the most proficient; next came a type of or- ganized play where more could take part, and from this an opportunity to satisfy pat- riotic feelings by organizing and matching this play on the field. Hence intercollegiate athletics should be an expression of the physical ideal, of the desire to play, of the desire to fight and of the ideal of patriotism. These are worthy ideals, and if we at Ne- braska are fulfilling the possibilities, we are doing a great service to the state by foster- ing the very thing which many fond moth- ers and fathers think barbaric. Let us first consider whether athletics at Nebraska are building up physical manhood of the state. I affirm that they are. Come out on the field with me and you will admit that the men you see there are doing supe- rior work in whatever activity they choose to try their powers. Perhaps you will say, " But what are you doing for that greater body of students, physically, who are not out here on the field? These men here are only picked men; for the most part they were developed before they entered the University. " I would agree with you, but must ask that you follow your investigation farther. " Where did they get the idea that they wanted to be proficient in some line of athletics? Was that an inherent idea which came along with what you believe was inherent ability to do the things they now do? My friend, athletes are not born; they are made. Many of the men whom you see before you have had the slightest and most fragile bodies, and have built them- selves up during their boyhood by having had the ideal of physical proficiency held up to them very early in their lives. These men now are serving today as the ideals to many a youngster over the state who is building up a physique whose powers he intends to give the most thorough trial when he enters the University. Of course, we can benefit the men who are here if they will get out on the field, but we cannot make masters of them because their mus- cles have too long been neglected. The exercise will keep them in good health and make it possible for them to better develop their minds, but we must be content to know that we have stirred within them the ideal that they might go out and inspire the youth of the state to begin early to develop their bodies. " No one doubts that athletics at the Uni- versity afford an opportunity for most every student to enjoy himself or herself. Every year more than a hundred men appear for football. Half that number appear for bas- ketball and almost a hundred for track ath- letics. In baseball we have our inter-fra- ternity league and the inter-department league, which gives recreation to more than two hundred more. The first two classes of girls are busy the year around in dif- ferent forms of indoor sport, which a very efficient department directs. Then there are the various outside sports, such as tennis and golf, that will include most of those not included in the other sports. The idea that some people get from seeing so small a number actually representing the institution that athletics do not give an opportunity for every one to take part in some form or other is erroneous. Corntufiifeer, 1914 333 Do athletics at Nebraska satisfy that in- herent desire within to fight? The question will be answered by simply seeing a good football game. Not only do the men on the field match their prowess, seemingly, in a most inhuman way, but the bleachers and grandstand fairly spit fire with their weird yells and grotesque attitudes when the ball is on our one-yard line. One of the greatest things about inter- collegiate athletics at Nebraska do is to give an opportunity to express our loyalty and patriotism for our University. It binds us together into a common whole. Not only is the benefit to the man who gives his time and energy in representing his institution, but it is of lasting benefit to the student who watches the games from the side lines. If you give the individual the opportunity to express the rudiments of good citizenship in our University world, you can be sure that he is going to bend his efforts in the same unselfish spirit in a bigger one. Aside from the benefits to which we have alluded as accruing to the whole, the man who is actually in competition has instilled into him the idea that he must always do his best. He finds out his powers and there never was a man graduated from athletics who was afraid to tackle life. Again he learns how to control and get the best out of himself in critical situations. Now you will probably ask. " Has this man served the community at the expense of his own health and perhaps to the short- ening of his life? " If he has trained he has not. There is a great danger if he does not and then drives himself to a superhuman exertion. At that he soon learns that he cannot do his best and the effects of dissi- pation are brought home to him as they would not be if he were only lazily existing. From a study of what athletics are doing for our community and the individual, it is no more than fair that we should turn to what the community and the individual can do for athletics. Nebraska, we are sorry to say, is one of the poorest equipped Univer- sities, athletically, of any institution of her standing in the country. The athletic field is about one-fourth the size that it should be. The gymnasium is entirely inadequate and a menace to the health of the health- seeking people who daily inhabit it. We are upholding an ideal to the state and per- haps the state is slow to repay. That our University turns out the teams that she does is a tribute to the type of men that our state produces; it is a tribute to the students who support athletics and to the coaches who direct. At the present time the entire expense of maintaining inter- collegiate athletics must be met by the re- ceipts from football games. Thus the state forces the authorities to place a money premium upon the things that all should enjoy. She upholds the ideal of minimum cost of education and yet shuts out the great populace from the enjoyments which should be rightly theirs from the payment of a tax which is ample to cover this im- portant branch of human development. The best that the students can do for athletics is to support them to a unit. The present student ticket makes this possible without any great expense. The future members of our legislatures will no doubt be gradually won over to the fact that athletics should not only be general in th e student body, but free to the public. Am I going to the game Saturday? Am I? Me? Am t going to eat some more food this year? A m I going to draw my pay this month? Ami going to do any more breathing after I get this lungful used up? A II foolish guestions, pal. Very silly conversation A m I going to the game, you ask me? Is the sun going to get up tomor- row?

The first week could scarcely be termed a time of rejoicing, either for Coach Stiehm or his small army of followers. Towle, the star quarter of the previous season, was in the east and the rumor was abroad that he would not return. Mastin, the rangy end, was also reported as hopeless and the loss of the mighty Pearson, together with Swan- son, Harmon and " Tiny " Allen left a va- cancy that was in itself appalling. However, with the return of Towle, Mas- tin and Ross to the fold and the surprising showing of the new men, Cameron, Abbott and Thompson, prospects brightened in the Cornhusker camp. Howard was switched from end to full, Beck replaced Howard at end and with Rutherford added to our vet- eran backfield the team began to make a reputable showing. The line was the weak spot in the wall. Halligan and Mastin were the only regulars of the past season present. On October 5th, when Washburn was trounced 19 to 0, our hopes rose again, as we witnessed the " green " line sturdily stop- ping the Washburn backs. Rutherford, Purdy, Towle and Halligan proved to be the most consistent ground gainers for the ' Huskers. Hardy, the colored halfback of the opponents, proved to be their best man, but even his efforts availed little. The following week the Kansas Aggies, the baby member of the Conference, were met on the home field and defeated 24 to 6. The Aggies started hard and fast and se- cured the first touchdown on straight foot- ball. Nebraska retaliated, however, by giv- ing the Ags a taste of their own medicine. Howard ' s punting was the feature of the game, his kicks averaging forty-three yards. Halligan, Rutherford and Towle ably as- sisted, as also did Mastin and Beck. The former ' s offensive work showed a decided improvement over his work the previous week. The week following was one of great suspense for the adherents of game and one of hard grind for our valiant warriors. For the second time in the history of the school the mighty Swedes were making an invasion of the Cornhusker territory. With the repu- tation of having the greatest backfield in the west, which included the AU-American Shaughnessy, we certainly had just cause to await their attack with fear and trembling. The day was ideal, the crowd was im- mense, and the team was in good condition. Minnesota started with a rush and the scarlet and cream players fought with their very backs against the goal posts all during the first quarter. During the period the Nebraska goal was in danger almost contin- ually and the Gophers carried the ball a distance of 134 yards, but were unable to score. Howard ' s great punt of sixty yards figured materially in staving off a Gopher score. The second period was slightly in favor of the ' Huskers, but nothing was accom- plished. Toward the close of the third period, how- ever, things took a decided change. Ne- braska held the ball near the center of the field. A pass from Rutherford to Purdy made fifteen yards, another one by Howard to Halligan netted fifteen yards more. The spectators by this time were chanting for a touchdown. Towle, with the generalship of a veteran, called for another pass, which Cornfjusffeer, 1914 339 he deftly flipped to Beck, who charged over the Minnesota goal for the much desired touchdown. At that moment Beck added his name to that of Bender as being one of the only two Cornhuskers to ever score a winning touchdown against the ever-vic- torious Gophers. The final quarter opened with the Minne- sota eleven fighting desperately to even up the score. Shaughnessy was compelled to retire because of injuries when the Gophers were within striking distance of Nebraska ' s goal. Bierman, who took his place, carried evenly matched, but Nebraska secured the advantage by scoring early via the Ruther- ford route. The Indians came back strong later in the game and by a series of end runs and forward passes scored a touchdown, but failed to kick goal. Powell, an ex-Carlisle star, was the Indians ' most consistent ground gainer. The ' Huskers out-played them by a larger margin than the score indicates, however, carrying the ball 208 yards to the Indians ' 183. the oval to our 10-yard line and fumbled, whereupon Halligan recovered, much to the satisfaction of the horrified spectators. Howard attempted to punt out of danger, but was blocked and again the mighty Hal- ligan fell on the ball. Here the game ended and Nebraska rooters went wild. For the second time in history Minnesota had been defeated and old Jack Best ' s dream of a decade before had again come true. No one was a star in particular, it was just the team. True, Purdy ' s great defensive work, Mastin ' s smashing of interference, Halli- gan ' s charging and Towle ' s wonderful pass- ing figured materially in the outcome. Nebraska ' s forward passing was excep- tionally fine, making three good out of six attempts for a distance of forty yards. Minnesota, on the other hand, failed ten out of eleven attempts. Howard out-punted his opponent ten yards (as an average) on every exchange of punts. Dr. Williams, the Minnesota coach, ex- pressed the whole story when he said: " I cannot say I expected the Gophers to be defeated. Nebraska has a great team. " The contest which probably was the most gruelling game of the season and the one which proved the most disastrous to the physical condition of the team was the Has- kell Indian battle. The ' Huskers won to the tune of 7 to 6. but the victory was a costly one, as Captain Purdy was severely crippled and for a while it appeared as though he would be out of the game for the rest of the season. The teams were On November 9th our athletes traveled to Ames minus the services of Captain Purdy and administered an 18 to 9 drub- bing to the strong agricultural team who had been playing exceptionally strong with the other teams of the Conference. Ames started fast and registered 9 points before the Cornhusker team got to going right. The team showed the old fighting spirit so often displayed throughout the season and more than played the Aggies to a standstill. With the Kansas game two weeks dis- tant Coach Stiehm allowed his proteges a rest following the Ames game and by way of practice toyed with the Nebraska Wesleyan team to the tune of 42 to 7 on November 9th. Wesleyan was lucky to score. Howard, by mistake, flipped the oval to Durham, the Methodists ' right end, who romped away for an easy score. Ross created the sensation of the game by bring- ing Hudson, Wcsleyan ' s speedy half, down after a spirited hare and hound chase. The week preceding the Kansas game was another one of stiff practice and training. Kansas, as before, was lying in wait for Nebraska and the controversy between the two schools over the eligibility of Ross made the interest in the game intense. The team was accompanied to Lawrence by an enthusiastic bunch of rooters. Purdy ' s in- jured knee had mended to such a degree that he was able to hobble and Rutherford had recovered from his sickness so that the ' Husker machine was intact. 340 Corni)U£ttrr. 1014 On a muddy field the Nebraskans romped away with a 9 to victory, due to Towle ' s brilliant drop kicking and Halligan ' s con- sistent line bucking. Howard out-punted his opponent (averaging thirty-six yards) and the great defensive work of Mastin and Beck were additional features. As a climax to the exceedingly brilliant season of the Nebraska team, the Iowa he placed Halligan, left tackle, on his first All-Western team and Rutherford on his second. Purdy was also given honorable mention. Much credit must be given Coach Edward O. Stiehm for developing a crowd of green aspirants to football honors into a cham- pionship machine. Three times he has drilled the men into championship honors The Rooters. AT THE IOWA GAME. State University was routed bv the score of 12 to in one of the most spectacular games of the year. THE IOWA GAME With a team that had the reputation of having the fastest backfield in the west, the Iowa rooters came to Lincoln en masse. The much heralded " spread play " of the lowans availed them nothing against the brilliant playing of Thompson and the rest of the team. The game started with a rush and before the first period closed Rutherford had shifted across the Iowa goal line for the first touchdown of the day. The next two quarters saw no further scoring, but with the ' Husker machine holding for downs on their 1-yard line furnished much more ex- citement than if they had added another score. Towle directed the team in a heady man- ner and certainly portrayed the fact that he was the brains of the game. Mastin at end played the best game of his career, as did Rutherford and Halligan. Captain Purdy wound up his footfall ca- reer in stirring fashion, playing on one leg as it were. His two long plunges in the last quarter were as spectacular and as great as any of the historic dashes of old- time heroes. Although forced to retire for one period because of his injury he returned with the same old " pep " that made the team fight from whistle to whistle. Walter Eckersall, who acted as referee, gave the Nebraska team a great boost when and in as many years has lost only two games, and- both of those outside of the Conference. Nebraska was honored by the majority of sporting editors in having six represent- atives on the mythical All-Missouri team. Purdy, Halligan, Beck, Mastin, Towle and Rutherford were the players chosen. Taken as a whole the season of 1913 was the most successful in the entire history of the school. The enviable record of having defeated such teams as Minnesota, Iowa, Haskell and Kansas will be one long re- membered and cherished by the student body of the institution. Next year ' s pros- pects at present point to another formidable squad with the addition of such men of known ability as Chamberlain, Porter, Amack and Corey. Max Towle was made captain-elect, but officials of the Conference have since de- clared him ineligible and Stiehm will be forced to look elsewhere for a pilot to run his 1914 " roller.

STIEHM T THE close of every football season, no matter how success- _ ful it may have been, the loyal enthusiast cannot help but commence a speculation upon the prospects of the following season. We are just closing eleven than she has for the 1914 team. Nine members of our all-victorious 1913 machine are eligible, according to the rules of the Missouri Valley, to compete another year, and of these seven are almost certain to return. The what has been one of the most brilliant records ever made by a Nebraska team upon the gridiron, and this has come in spite of the fact that when the school year closed last spring the lack of vet- eran material gave the football dope- sters very little hope for even a Mis- souri Valley championship. For this reason alone it may be read- ily seen that " dope, " no matter how hot it is at the close of one football season, has a tendency to grow cold before an- other twelve months have rolled by. We may figure now that 1914 will equal, if not surpass, the wonderful work of the present aggregation unless by the time for the opening practice we find that our plans and hopes have been upset by unforeseen circumstances, such as sickness of players, failure of stars to return to school, or just com- mon, every-day hard luck, such as has pursued the Cornhuskers in times past. However, no matter how things will actually shape themselves next fall, at the present time Nebraska has never had a rosier outlook for a winning other two have given out statements which at least lead us to hope that they intend to do their best to be in the old red and white uniform in next fall ' s bat- tle with the Gophers at Minneapolis. Besides this formidable nucleus we have probably the greatest array of Freshmen stars for many years, who will be in a position to represent the ' varsity next year. They give promise to form a combination as powerful as any of the old-time aggregations that have carried the Scarlet and Cream to all victorious seasons. Several of the first-year men are showing speed and strength enough in the daily scrim- mages with the ' varsity to assure them of places upon the team of 1914. Two of these are undoubtedly as great a pair of football players as has ever donned the moleskins at any west- ern institution, not excluding Minne- sota, Chicago, Wisconsin or Michigan. Of the present regular team, Purdy and Ross are the only players that we will lose by the three-year rule, while Cornfjujifecr, 1914 343 Towle-= and Beck, the little quarterback and speedy end, are eligible for another year of competition, but can graduate the most terrific runners while on the defense. He has a quick head and is shifty enough to take advantage of at the end of the present school year if they so desire. The loss of Captain Purdy will mean that the Cornhuskers lose a two and possibly three-year all- Missouri Valley player, who is a hard line smasher, a fleet end dasher and a demon defensive tackier. Clinton Ross, while not a flashy performer, is a pillar of strength in the line and, but for the wealth of material which we may ex- pect next fall, his absence would prob- ably become a blow from which the team would not recover. With Howard and Rutherford re- maining for backveld positions, Mastin at one end, Halligan, Thompson, Ab- bott and Cameron in the line and pos- sibly Towle at quarter, and Beck at end, the present Freshmen will be called upon to fill but four positions, at the most, upon the 1914 squad. This they are abundantly able to do. Chamberlain, the 192-pound halfback, is a wonderful player, with a combina- tion of speed, weight and aggressive- ness which equals that of the mighty Brickley of Harvard, according to ex- perts who have seen both perform. He can plunge through an almost unmov- able line, skirt the best of ends, or stop •T..wle later tlinqunlificcl in nccorilancr will. Mi.- «ouri Valley Conference rule, by attion t.l ih.. Aililn,. every opportunity. He will make a great running mate for Rutherford. H. H. Corey, the 200-pound Fresh- man tackle, has been a bugbear to the ' varsity men all season, and has broken up more plays unassisted than any reg- ular collegian which Nebraska has met upon the gridiron. He will be respected by all of the Cornhuskers ' opponents as soon as he becomes a member of the team, and class with Westover, Shonka or other of Nebraska ' s famous line men. Rasmussen and Norris are brilliant first-year performers who have shown ' varsity ability from the first practice of the year. Norris is from Halligan ' s home town, and out there in North Platte they claim that he is the equal of the " Thunderbolt. " Porter, if Towle fails to return, should develop into a second Johnny Bender at the general ' s position. He has shown a remarkable amount of speed and " pep " during the long grind of practice. If everything breaks in our favor, and there is no reason why everything should not, Nebraska, for the first time in the history of the school, should humble the mighty Minnesota team two years in succession, as well as an- nex the fifth straight Missouri Valley cliaiiipionship. 344 CornfitiJrttfr, 1914 i:f)e tE eam Captain— Right Half " Pid, " our captain, was one of the hardest fight- WeTght, 168.

Bob ' s hardest game was the one with the Haskells. and in that game he was opposed by one of the best centers in the west. At the present time it is very doubtful whether Bob will be back next season, but all are hoping for the best.

At the very start he was injured by having his shoulder broke, but it was only a short time until he was in the game again, and his first real game was against Minnesota. From then on he proved to be a tower of strength to the team and he never failed to gain ground when called upon. Roy is one of the men that know how to study and keep their work up, so we will see him in the lineup next season.

The Old " N " Men ' s Association has gone by the boards as far as any real Vi ork is concerned. The new organi- zation will be secret, with a unique initiation ceremony that will imprint an everlasting mem- ory in the mind of anyone who is fortunate enough to live through it. Every " N " man will be a member by virtue of the fact that he has won the coveted letter. It is planned to have three big initiation ceremonies each year, one after the football season, one after the winter sports and one after the spring sports. After these ceremonies a banquet will follow, at which we will try and have the old fellows present. Aside from the regular meetings there will be special gatherings when any old fellow is captured on the campus who has not gone through the required degree. The purpose of such an organization is threefold: To promote good fellowship among the athletes, to straighten out any athletic tangle that may present itself, and to see that Nebraska High School stars attend the University. In future the Athletic Review will be published by the ' Varsity Club. — The Alumnus. LIFE ATHLETIC PASS. The athletic board some time ago voted a life pass to all men who have won their letters in the major sports of football, track, basketball and baseball. These passes are now in the hands of the secretary of the athletic board and may be had upon application to him. These passes entitle the holder to general admission into all contests on the home field. In writing address Dr. R. G. Clapp, Secretary Athletic Board, Station A, Lincoln, Nebraska. Be sure to give your name in the exact way in which you want it engraved, the sport in which you won your letter and the years that you competed. The passes are of German silver and will cost the holders the price of engraving plus the cost of the plaques. — The Alumnus. Cornf)us:feEr,19l4 347 J I HAARMANN.

REED OOD feeling toward and from our sister institutions with whom we engage on the ath- letic field is essential to the very life of intercollegiate athletics. We hear every year a great deal of fol-de-rol about this or that athletic conference, but the important thing is that we have the reputation in the student bodies of our rivals of being good sportsmen. Our competitors are not our enemies; they are our friends, bringing out the very best that is in us by their friendly strife against us. We shall always be- lieve that we have the best men, but if in open strife we shall be bested, then every man ought to show his manliness in an open and firm way by congratu- lating our conquerors in a hearty fash- ion. To malign those who have proved their prowess by defeating our chosen men is a reflection upon our student body that every Cornhusker should re- sent. Nebraskans have no use for the student who claims that the luck went against us and was responsible for de- feat. Neither have we any use for the half-hearted, half-manly individual who says we were lucky to win. History has proved that the team which is up and doing generally has the good for- tune. For the past month Nebraska and Kansas have been squabbling over a matter which has created a bitter feel- ing between the student bodies of the two institutions. What paltry business for great education institution to be embroiled in ! A principle was involved, to be sure, but diplomats and peace envoys have conquered more than in- triguers and war. It is no wonder that the opponents of intercollegiate athlet- ics " pipe " up at the opportunities thus presented. The Missouri Valley colleges have been throwing brickbats at Nebraska for years because of our desire to join the Western Intercollegiate Confer- ence. They state that we think we have outgrown the Missouri Valley Conference. True it is that we are look- ing for new fields to conquer, and we point with pride to our record for the past ten years. It is ambition, not snobbishness, which impels us to join a more prominent conference. If we should join the larger college organi- zation we should still want to compete with Ames, Drake, Kansas Aggies and Kansas. Nevertheless, our desire has created an ill feeling against us that will be hard to appease. Here we can take a firm stand and feel that we are right. Nebraska will probably join the " Big Eight " Conference if she gets a chance — but she will always be desir- ous of competing against the old, worthy foes. The Missouri Valley Conference has served a worthy cause. No one can condemn the motives of the men who have served as leaders. A better basis for settling misunderstandings has been established. All-year coaches have been employed. Competent and honest officials are listed and recommended. Rules for handling all intercollegiate sports have been made and interpreted. All regulations passed have been in the interest of clean sport and have served to destroy the old spirit of " win-at-any- cost. " Only a few weeks ago the football team and the rooters who accompanied them had an opportunity to enjoy hos- pitality and good sportsmanship at the hands of the Iowa State Collegians at Ames. A few years ago (some of the older students will remember that) our Cornl)U£(fecr,l9l4 349 reception was quite different. This year it was cheers and kind rivalry which greeted us. instead of gibes and jeers. Ames evidently has awakened to the situation that, win or lose, competitors deserve the kindest of courtesies. The experience this year has so entirely changed the attitude of Cornhuskers toward the Aggies that all would be willing to sign a contract for an ex- change of contests to last nine hundred and ninety-nine years. There can be no ill feeling between institutions which are on good terms, such as were demonstrated at Ames last fall. Nebraska needs to be careful of her own reputation, especially since she is undergoing a period of criticism at the hands of the Valley institutions. In years past, it is more than likely that instances could be cited showing the shortcomings of the Cornhuskers as hosts. And yet, during the past season, no instance has occurred which reacts upon the spotless athletic record of the year. Minnesota seemed delighted with the reception given them while in Lin- coln. The Haskell Indians were pro- fuse in their praise of our hospitality. Perhaps the awakening has already come here, and Nebraska ' s fame as a university of good sportsmen will fol- low the news of her athletic ups and downs. The tribute most to be desired — more important even than the one which could be given the supremacy of the teams — is this: " Nebraska is a clean, straight school. Her men are real sportsmen. " THE KANSAS JAYHAWK. Later captured and carried off to Lincoln by Nebraskans as a trophy of victory. Funeral rites were observed with due solemnity and ceremony. 350 (CmiilinsUft-, 1014 jFootijall jForecasit The schedule for the coming fall is the heaviest ever made for a Nebraska team. As luck would have it, only two of the eight games will be played away from home. The team will go to Manhattan, Kansas, for the game with the Kansas Aggies. This will be the first time our football team has ever gone to Manhattan, and the Aggie manage- ment is going to have the Cornhuskers play to the Homecomers. The last game of the season will be played in Iowa City with Coach Hawley ' s Hawkeyes for opponents. The other six games — Washburn, South Dakota, Michigan Aggies, Ames, Morning- side and Kansas — will all be played on Ne- braska field. Of the thirteen men to receive their let- ters last fall only seven will be back to form the nucleus of the 1914 Stiehm Roller. The backfield will only have two veterans back, Warren Howard at fullback and " Dick " Rutherford at left half. At most times this would be terrible news, but from the Freshmen team material can be drawn that will plug up the holes in great shape. It is nearly a cinch that Chamberlain will win a place in the back field. Chamberlain is said by many to be " All American " ma- terial. He has run the half mile in 2:06, the quarter in :53 and the 100 and 220 in 10:2 and :23, respectively. Measuring well over six feet and weighing 200, he is a de- mon on offense and defense. He handles himself well and Stiehm expects him to be the sensation in the Valley. For quarter there are several likely bidders. Hawkins, captain-elect of the basketball team and A LITTLE " DOPE. " For the benefit of the dopester let it be said that the coming football schedule abounds in dope stuff. On the day that Nebraska plays the Kansas Aggies at Man- hattan, the Michigan Aggies will play " Hurry-Up " Yost ' s Michigan team. On the following Saturday the Michigan team will line up on Soldier ' s Field in Cambridge, Mass., against Coach Percy Haughton ' s Harvard champions. On the same day that Harvard plays Michigan the Michigan Ag- gies will oppose the Cornhuskers. By this brace of games the dopesters can figure Nebraska ' s strength with Michigan and Harvard and every other team that either of these teams oppose. This will include Penn State, Syracuse, Yale, Brown, Prince- ton. West Point and Vanderbilt. The second game on the schedule is with South Dakota. On the following Saturday the Dakota men buck the William ' s Goph- ers in Minneapolis. On their schedule is halfback on the 1912 team, will bid hard for the place. Hawkins lacked one game of making his letter in 1912 and lost out in 1913 by suffering a broken leg in one of the early practices of the season. Porter from the Freshmen has excellent qualities. He weighs a little over 160 and has tripped the 100 in nearly even time. Renfro weighs about 165 and is heady and strong. Other high-class back field men are: Rasmussen, 165 pounds, and a ten-second man; Amack, 175 pounds, and DeLamatre, sub helf on 1913 team. The line will be heavier than the one last fall. Cameron will doubtless be shifted from tackle to center. Cameron ' s experience should go to make him the best keystone man Nebraska has had in several years. The guards will be filled by Abbott, right guard on t e 1913 team, and perhaps Norris at left. Abbott weighs about 200 and Norris around 180. The tackles are almost sure to go to Captain-elect Halligan and Corey. All Nebraskans know what Halligan is. These two men ought to be as strong as the Temple-Shonka combination in 1910. The right end will be held by " Bingo " Mas- tin, said to be the peer of defensive Mis- souri Valley ends. The left end, Balis. It has been years since Nebraska had better prospects. To be fair, one would be forced to say that every man, including Captain " Vic, " will have to work like " sixty " to keep from being routed off the team. Among the promising Freshmen who have not been spoken of before are: Caley, Hal- bersleben, Lyman, Arrheart. Moates, Rich- ards, Selzer, Sherry and Westover. — C.K.M. Notre Dame. By the means of the Ne- braska-South Dakota clash and the South Dakota-Notre Dame game the dopester can line up Nebraska ' s strength with Texas, Arkansas and Purdue. The last game of the season is with the Hawkeyes at Iowa City. Here again the dope fiend can draw comparisons between the ' Huskers and the Big Nine. Such a schedule should give the football " bug " supreme happiness. — C.K.M. NEB.

Captain Haskcl 3S6 Cornliuirtifr, 1014 Cije JBasifeet Jlall eam Basketball was rather slow in asserting itself for the 1913-1914 season. This was probably due to a self-satisfaction in the lingering on of our football laurels, to the fact that a large per cent of our basketball players were also football players and were recuperating from injuries and bad schol- astic standings, and that there was a nucleus of but two old players upon which to build a team. Coach Stiehm ' s members took the " bull by the horns " after the Christmas holidays and the team developed a momentum which could not be stopped. After the hard weeks of preliminary practice with nearly all secondary teams, Coach Stiehm declared his team ready for conquest. The first in- vasion was to the northland. Contrary to tradition the fiery temperament of our southern boys was too much for the thicker blooded northerners. Sacred Heart, Du- buque and Company G were met and de- feated in turn. Not satisfied with this, Min- nesota was neatly " trimmed " in two succes- sive games — the second defeat at the hands of Nebraska over a period of eighteen years. Our student body here appreciated the class of basketball the team was playing and turned out enthusiastically for the remainder of our home games, making this our first successful financial season. On our home floor Drake, Omaha Ex-Uni and Ames were easily defeated. A second invasion into Iowa was as successful as our first to the north. The only regrettable feature of the season was the action of Kan- sas, winners of the southern division, who, instead of meeting us for the Missouri Val- ley championship, were content to rest on their laurels, thus allowing public sentiment to give us what we preferred to win by contest. Haskel, captain, and better known around school as " Roz, " will be lost to us, by grad- uation, when another season drifts around. What can be done without him in basket- ball circles cannot be figured out on paper. For three years he has been All-Missouri Valley forward and largest scorer on the Nebraska team. We place him in memories ' hall of successful captains and phenomenal players. Hanzlik will also be lost by graduation. " Milo " has been with us for three years, playing forward on three championship teams. His work during this time has leaned toward the sensational. We will miss him on next year ' s team. Meyers, better known as " Seven, " held down the pivot position to the entire satis- faction of the fans, and that is saying a whole lot. This is his first year on the team and during the season did not meet his equal. We will need him next year. Warren Howard ' s career as a basketball player started with the opening of this sea- son. Warren is a brilliant player, much given to excenticating a thrill from the spec- tators. He will be with us in a guard posi- tion next fall. Hugg, forward and stellar team-work man. " Ed " has the distinction of making the team in his first year. Another season will see him on the " All-Missouri Valley. " Richard Rutherford, (Dick), says he does not like the game — you could not tell it by watching him play. His long suit is break- ing up team-work and starting seventh in- ning rallies. Watch him next season. Hawkins, a victim of many cognomens, will answer more readily to the one of " Hawk. " " Hawk " played his usual char- acteristic game this season and was re- warded by being elected captain of the 1915 team. Corni)Ufl!feer, 1914 357 trijc Reason in lACbicto " X-UNI. " The season was opened by playing ex- Uni ' s {rom Omaha, from whom we won by the score of 44 to 22. COTNER. The ' Huskers met the Cotnerites and won by the decisive score of 56 to 11. WESLEYAN. In the first game with Wesleyan, January 23d, Nebraska won by 29 to 20. In this game ten of the opponent ' s points were scored by the free route. The game, although no farce, was so easy that substitutions were frequent. MINNESOTA. At Minneapolis, Minn., February 6th. ragged playing, with a few brilliant flashes of a fast play, featured the basketball con- test between Minnesota and Nebraska, in which the latter were victors by a score of 21 to IS. MINNESOTA. On February 7th Minnesota was almost shut out as far as field goals are concerned when the Gophers lost to Nebraska 14 to 9. The Gophers did not make a basket during the first half, and two baskets in close play by Captain Stadsvold in the middle of the second half were all the Minnesotans could get in legitimate scoring. It was a rough and tumble game from the start. Every- thing except flying tackles was in vogue. WESLEYAN. The Nebraska basket shooters met their Waterloo when the Wesleyan Coyotes came in from University Place and took their measure by a count of 24 to 18. It was Ne- braska ' s first defeat in three years on the home floor. ST. JOSEPH. At Dubuque, la., February 5th, the re- markable team work and ability to cage the ball from any angle of the floor won for the Nebraska University basketball team an overwhelming victory over the St. Joseph ' s squad by a score of 48 to 11. AMES. At Ames, Iowa, February 21st, Nebraska beat the Ames basketball team decisively, 16 to 3. Nebraska had the game in hand from the start. The score at the end of the first half was 8 to 1. Rutherford was the only Nebraska man who could not score. Nebraska outclassed Ames today, both of- fensively and defensively. They outdribbled and outpassed Ames, and had the knack of completing passes when near the Ames goal. The Nebraska defense was too close and fast for Ames to do anything with it. Ames ' one field goal was thrown by Holmes in the last half. 358 CoinliusUri-, 1014 W )t eas on in i ebietu DRAKE. On February 20th, although outplayed during the first five minutes of the game, the Nebraska quintet came back strong and defeated Drake handily by a score of 36 to 17. The contest was featured by the close guarding of both aggregations, and but for the Nebraska players ' superior strength and endurance, the Bulldogs would have figured more strongly in the finish. Captain Haskell played his usually steady and sensational game, caging four baskets as well as fighting the floor at all times. Hawkins, from a running guard, counted five times from the field. FORT DODGE. The ' Huskers ran up against the strongest semi-pro team in the Hawkeye state, the National Guardsmen of Fort Dodge, a team hitherto undefeated. Handicapped by play- ing under A. A. U. rules, they swept the soldiers off their feet and won 38 to 22. DRAKE. " X-UNI. " On February 21st, playing the best game of the season, Drake went down to defeat before Nebraska by a score of 36 to 17. The difference in the count does not indicate the fierceness of the play and there was not a minute in the game that was without in- terest. Nebraska defeated the X-Uni team of Omaha by a score of 40 to 19. The game was played at the Omaha Y. M. C. A. and was fairly easily won. Most of the game was played by subs.

REED, Nebraska ' s track coach and manager of athletics, needs no introduction in Nebraska athletic circles. To the " grads " »he is the speed merchant of old, the man who holds the Missouri record in the 440, and who used to bring seemingly lost races out of the fire by his wonderful speed and staying power. To the pres- ent-day athletes he is Coach Reed. To the coming athletes he is the man who handles their big track meet and basketball tournament. By all he is respected and honored because of his efficiency, both as coach and manager. But no body of athletes can possibly think more of him than the track squad. From March until June, practically every afternoon, his time is devoted to training his track men. He develops these men, not only physi- cally, but also mentally. He seems to have that power of pumping the fighting spirit into a man, which is, above all, essential in track athletics. CornfjujSfeer, 1914 363 «Conil)iiaUfr, 1014 vatk ta on of 1913 (By Guy E. Reed.) The track team of 1913 was one of the most remarkable track teams that the Uni- versity has produced. The entire team ex- cept three men were Sophomores. The three exceptions were Juniors only. The strength of every western track team is generally measured by the Senior athletes who are seasoned and experienced. It is to be wondered how these youngsters ever made the record they did. Although de- feated by Kansas by a large score in the early season and defeated by a narrow mar- gin by Ames they made up for their earlv season losses by overwhelmingly defeating Minnesota at Minneapolis and winning third place in the Missouri Valley Conference at St. Louis. At the Missouri Valley meet, Kansas, the team which had defeated them by such an overwhelming score in the early season, had to be content with fourth place. Among the notable performances of 1913 perhaps the work of Myers stands out most prominently. He competed in the shot put, discus and high jump in every meet, win- ning a total number of points for the season of 58. Captain Reavis, by vaulting 11 feet 11 4 inches at St. Louis, proved himself one of the best pole vaulters in the west. In the short dash Reese was second in the west to Applegate of Purdue only. Zumwinkel ran a wonderful race in the 220-yard dash at Minneapolis, winning by a safe margin in 22 1-5 seconds. Linstrum showed that he could consistently vault 11 feet 6 inches aside from competing in the high hurdles and the relay in emergency. Wherry, Bates, Reese and Zumwinkel easily showed them- selves the class of the Valley in the half mile relay at St. Louis. Among the other men who showed promise of being stellar performers before their athletic careers are ended were Goetze, one of the best five milers in the Missouri Valley; Anderson and McMasters in the mile and two-mile and Nafziger and Gross in the hurdles. With every old man back for two years more and good Freshmen material devel- oping, it is assured that Nebraska will be able to cope with her strongest foes in spite of the handicap imposed by having very poor equipment for adequate winter training. 1 Cornijugfecr, 1914 365 1913 letter iHcu 4 ■tti •■Herb " Reese.

The Jayhawkers came out on the long end of the score, the finish looking something like 67 to 42. In the track events the Kansas men outclassed the ' Huskers, but were uanble to outshine in the field. Out of the 40 field points the Cornhuskers were able to cop 23 of them. Out of 69 points in the track events the Jayhawks took SO. The Nebraska team did better than was expected. With inade- quate quarters for winter work it is nearly impossible to get the track team in good shape to compare favorably with schools that are not thus handicapped before the last of May.

Nearing completion in the Mechanical Engineering Laboratories is an up-to-date 12-inch telescope. After four years of study and application on the part of the instructors and students, it will be completed and ready for installation by the time the removal question has been settled and the new observatory has been built for it. All the work of construction has been done by the students under the supervision of the instructors of the Mechanical Engineering Depart- ment, except three castings and lens, which could not be handled because of inadequate equipment. We owe the design to Prof. Sweezey of the Astron- ony Department. The general plan was taken from telescopes at Washbutn College and Denver Observa- tory. The design is complicated, yet complete in every respect, very few alterations being required in the shops. The pattern for all the castings were made in the woodshop under the direction of Prof. Bunting, and among them were some quite difficult of construction the largest one being the pattern for the base, which is hollow and rectangular in section. The dimensions are as follows: Base. 3 ft. 9 in. by 4 ft. 6 in : top. 2 ft. 2 , in. by 1 ft. 10 , in.: height. i , ft. This has also been one of the heaviest castings, weighing about 1,860 pounds. This casting, among all the rest made in the Engineering Laboratory, was producetl by the engineering stu lcnts under the supervision of Prof. Grcnnen. Most of them are of cast iron, although some of the smaller or more complicated ones were made of brass All the machine and lathe work constituting the t:i cater part of the work on this telescope has been done in the well-equipped machine shop. Prof. Paine supervising the work of construction and assembly. Only a few of the minor parts of the auxiliary mech- anisms have yet to be completed and all will be ready for installation in its new home. It is partially as- sembled in the machine shop now, and is open for inspection by inlerciled parties. 378 (Conit)iiaUrr. 1014 The telescope s to be e quipped wi h an app aratus. whereby focusing Qn a star or planet. t his mec hanism will keep the tele scope on that star o planet -. vhile it is crossing the h thout the urther at tention of the operator.

" Jamison — " Fairly accurate; yes, sir. " Maxey — Mr. Hanzlik! " Hanzlik (reading morning paper) — " I don ' t seem to have the case. " Maxey — " I see you were looking diligent- ly for it, but unfortunately in the wrong place. " Hanzlik (meekly) — " Yes, sir. " Maxey — " What ' s this? Most of the class unprepared? Mr. Enfield, have you got the case? " Enfield (reading at once) — " The defend- ant was a railroad corporation doing bus — " Maxey — " Hold on! I didn ' t ask you to read the case; I asked if you had it. " Enfield— " I have it. " Maxey — " You may discuss it if you have it. " Enfield — " Without reading it? " Maxey — " Well, now, I thought Mr. Bush- nell was the only one in the class that could discuss the cases without reading them. " Enfield — " But I mean without reading the report of it. " Maxey — " Yes, if you will promise not to let the report reach the ears of any of the class — it may be too old. " Enfield— " Old? It ' s only 1899! But I don ' t believe it ' s long enough to reach that far! " Maxey — " We will eliminate the levity and proceed with the discussion. " Enfield — " The plaintiff was injured in the Nashville yards by the defendant ' s engine. " Ammerman — " That ' s a funny place to in- jure a man. " Class— " Noah ' s Ark! Whiskers! " etc. Enfield (continuing) — " The plaintiff was a lady. " Maxey — " Does the case say so? " Enfield — " Yes. The engine ran into her and broke her wooden leg.

Beginning in meager surroundings in the basement of University Hall, it gradually out- grew its location and was moved to the third floor of the same building. THE CASE SYSTEM. The course of study was changed from the study of text books, and lec- tures of local lawyers, to the modern " case " system. By this means of study- ing actual adjudicated cases, the stu- dent grasps the law, reasoning and procedure of the courts in a very con- crete and interesting manner. THE NEW QUARTERS. But the college also outgrew these quarters and became of sufficient size to warrant the erection of a new build- ing constructed and equipped especial- ly to meet its purpose. This building was completed in 1913 and is one of the most up-to-date structures on the campus. CLASS ROOMS. The class rooms are very large and so arranged that the light is always over the left shoulder. With the seats placed on an incline, and the acoustic facilities carefully planned, every one is able to see and hear all that takes place in the recitations. COURT PRACTICE. One of the features of the new build- ing is the court room, which is located on the second floor and arranged ac- cording to actual practice. The judge ' s bench, the jury box, attorneys ' tables, and a separate place for spectators are provided, thus creating the atmosphere essential to successful and beneficial moot court practice. THE COURT ROOM. This course is conducted by mem- Wl)t iSeto Halu JBuiltiing bers of the faculty, with members of the Senior class acting as supreme court judges and justices of the peace. Everyone in the law college is required to take a part in this work according to their standing, the Freshmen acting as witnesses and jurors, the Juniors practicing in the justice and district courts, and the Seniors having trial and appellate work. THE LIBRARY. The entire third floor is used for the law library and is very complete and well arranged. The study tables are in the center of the room and the steel book shelves stand on cement bases against the wall around the entire room. The library is equipped with the reporter from nearly all the states, to- gether with the sectional reports and a very complete set of text books. the left), fur Tierly fessor of Jur spruti read a paper on ' of t Cornfjusifecr, 1914 383 CHIRPINGS.

After looking up their record I am inclined to believe that they never did. — o — Robbins — " Well, I had him arrested be- cause I knew he was a crook the minute I set eyes on him.

" — o — Irish diamonds, Robbins says, are " sham- rocks. " Robbins says that when he came back from Arizona he knew why he never saw a preacher in the whole state during his stay. He says that he could realize, because of the weather, that hell had no terrors for the inhabitants. — o — Robbins was discussing anecdotes the other day. Finally he said, " Do any of you know just what an anecdote really is? " This is the answer that he got: " An anecdote is a story of extremely uncertain age that is founded on fiction and embellished by fancy. After lying dormant for years it is dug up and accredited to some entirely in- nocent and unsuspecting United States sen- ator. " 384 Cornfjiwrtifr, 1014 (§irlg Clut) XN THE Daily Nebraskan of September 27th, under the heading, " The Girls Are Off, " the following statement was made: " The co-eds are getting a good start, running steadily and apparently intending to keep the pace. " Now, that the year ' s work is almost completed, it is interesting to note what has been accomplished since this " good start. " There have been a few changes from the plans of former years; there have been a few innovations; but on the whole, a steady growth is the most prominent feature of the year. A noticeable spirit of co-operation has pre- vailed. Not only have the girls, as individuals, " pulled together, " but all the co-ed organ- izations have worked in perfect accord. This unity of purpose is, no doubt, largely responsible for the accomplishments of the year. Perhaps the most difficult undertaking was the endeavor to welcome the 500 or more girls who entered the University for the first time this fall; to see that they became acquainted with other students and were made to feel that they are an impor- tant part of the institution. At the rally for Freshmen, representative co-eds told the new students of some of the more important activities, and explained how membership is obtained in the various organizations which carry on these activities. A party in honor of Freshmen girls was given Saturday of the first week of school. A girls ' sec- tion was reserved for the football games and more than 500 co-eds took advantage of the special rate. During the first two months of school informal teas were held every Thursday afternoon. Faculty women as well as students dropped in for a cup of tea Comfjusfecr, X914 385 and an informal half hour. After Christmas, instead of the teas, Saturday afternoon parties were given. A diflferent group of girls was in charge each week. An admission fee of 5 cents was found sufficient to finance these parties and to provide simple refresh- ments. Attendance varied from twenty-two to 300, the average being about sixty. The girls ' costume party is perhaps the best example of the democratic spirit which has been manifest. This party was managed by the Girls ' Club Council, which is com- posed of representatives of each literary society and sorority, and from each rooming house at which four or more University women live; the presidents of the Y. W. C. A. and women ' s class societies and the fourteen members of the executive board. Despite the fact that on the night of the party there was a continual downpour of rain, more than 400 girls attended. A spirit of co-operation and comradeship prevailed. Although only a 10-cent admission fee was charged, a surplus of $18 remained in the treasury, and 400 girls had enjoyed the " best time " of the year. A resume of the discussions held at the meetings of the various organizations shows that practically all of these organizations realize the problems of the University girls and are anxious to help in solving them. There has been some interesting investigation concerning vocations. Opportunities and training for social service have been discussed. Proper sanitation, reasonable quiet hours, comfortable and homelike rooming houses have been advocated. Expense accounts, unwholesome economies and thoughtless extravagances have been good-naturedly exposed. Co-operative boarding houses and student management of rooming houses are being investigated. The advising of Fresh- men during their re-adjustment and lonesome " first weeks " has been planned. Methods of developing more leaders and of dividing honors among a larger percentage of stu- dents are being formulated. Hospitality, cleverness in detail, but simplicity in entertain- ment have been advocated. High scholarship and true culture have been emphasized as the ideal to be cherished. There seems to be an almost universal desire for true democ- racy and for efficient service. Comparison of the University of Nebraska with other state universities emphasizes the fact that this is a truly co-educational state institution. The girls feel that they are given full rights and privileges. The men also seem satisfied. The social life is normal, sane and surprisingly free from extravagance. Clean living is the rule. And, finally, the students are Nebraskans, the product of Nebraska homes. Pride in what has been achieved has created a desire for still greater accomplish- ments. A recent example of this spirit was given when a national Y. W. C. A. secretary told the local cabinet that a Nebraska alumna. Grace Coppock, is in charge of the Y. W. C. A. work in China. The girls, with thoughtfulness, but seemingly without apprehension, pledged themselves to undertake the entire support of Miss Coppock. The attitude of the girls was expressed by one of the members when she said, " Yes, it is a big undertaking to raise $1,500 yearly, but we feel that Miss Coppock ' s work is worth the effort, and what Nebraska girls undertake they accomplish.

Th.- Sl.ilis Own l ' ;i ;. 390 Cornfnisiifr, 1014 (BY " UPDE " ) CHURSDAY night, 12 o ' clock, I blew into the house and found two millionaires of the Pullman ready to start. " Wish we could see you down there " and " better come along " re- placed the usual " Ish-ka-bibble. " The next noon Bud says, " Well, Upde, why not? " So we did. About 4 we jumped into our two oldest suits and set out for two railroad yards. Arriving at the tracks we saw a little man sitting off to one side and thinking him a brakeman inquired as to the habits of the cannonball freight due to leave at 10:30. It turned out that " Shorty, " for such was our friend ' s name, was traveling as a side- door tourist and just then was on the look- out for " flys, " meaning yard officers. Well, we liked " Shorty " and " Shorty " liked us, so we formed a " Votes-for-bo ' s " league and made the date at 6 o ' clock for first meeting. When we returned to the house the bunch gave us the once over go-by, so with a lunch from Charlie and a new recruit in the make- up and title of " Ed " we set out for the yards. We found " Shorty " awaiting us with the news that the " hog " (road engine) was on and the " car-whackers " were going over the cars. " Shorty " soon found a safe refuge for us all in a carload of shingles — so in we crawled and blocked the door — and we were off to Kansas and the land of the Jayhawk. I once ate a rarebit composed of the strongest of everything, but I assure you my dreams of that night could not be compared with those produced by my bed of shingles. They say you can lead a horse to water and that a camel can go eight days without a drink — well, I rise to state that that en- gine wouldn ' t classify in a Noah ' s Ark as either. More than once I was tempted to complain to the Pullman Company — those would-be mattresses were stuffed with pine splinters. Morning came and with morning St. Joe. Out into the cold mist we hopped, fervently praying for a freight to get us to K. C. in time for the special. Nothing doing — all the freight trains were off to a box-car meet- ing or picnic, so, a kindly " cop " keeping an eye on us, we managed to bump into the train leaving for Kansas City. It was a pass- enger. Again I rise to state — much have I heard said about the comforts of the blind baggage — I see where it got its name. There were enough cinders spread in that trip to cover a new running track. Well, Kansas City showed up at last — also the fireman about the time we hit the river. Fortunately the wind changed and the cinders revenged themselves by keeping him down in the cab. Kansas City and Johnny Kling ' s pool hall, along with the " Blue Goose, " have always gone together for me. Anyway the rain produced a nice blend and we headed for Johnny Kling ' s, where we removed a con- glomeration of Nebraska and Kansas soil, together with Colorado coal and Oregon pine. After we had discussed and cussed the prospects of rain in Lawrence we hopped down to the station and while the fireman and engineer had another we crawled into the blind baggage, which I believe was made especially for us. We had left " Shorty " when we hit town, as Kansas City was his home. Now there were only three of us and luck seemed our way. The rain stopped and an hour later we were in Lawrence — 500 miles from home and in time to see the great fight. Lawrence proved to be a blood-relation of Havelock — made up mostly of candy kitch- ens, pool halls, movies, a theater and a hotel. The campus was nice, but again we were enlightened as to two heights of learn- ing, as most of their buildings stand on the top of a romantic hill. They say " Up on the hill — don ' t you know. " Cornfjufibcr, 1914 391 At the game itself — out of breath from running and being held up by our greenness of the town — we were again held up at the gate for a $1.50 for a 50-cent ticket. It was worth it to see the bunch again. What ' s that — U-U-U-n-n-i — the old band started up and dammysole if it didn ' t drown out the Jay- hawk band. The old Jayhawk himself did considerable stunts — and finally they lined up. Boy, that was s-o-m-e game! The field was one big puddle of mud with " a little green grass all around. " The diving tackle was again popular and the way those old boys lapped up that solution of terra-firma reminded you of dear old O Street. It was useless to try and tell the story of the game — we won — then Towle ' s kick — and Halligan ' s touchdown and Purdy ' s scrap — and the way the whole team swam — I tell you, we had some team. Well, it was all over. 9 to 0. Down the street went the bunch of Cream and Red in the old Cornhusker snake dance, so famous in song and story. All the in- habitants sauntered forth to gaze on the Cornhuskers while the Indians from Carlisle watched and fot a few new ideas for their snake song and dance stunts. A good supper and we headed for the train. We lost " Ed " in the shuffle, so " Bud " and " Yours Personally " headed for the sta- tion. " Bud " said it was the pay for him and purchased a ticket and Pullman, while little " Yours " trotted around to the other side and entered via Das Fenster. Well, next morning " Old Reliable " woke us by the announcement that all the shoes in his car was shined — fourteen berths and forty-eight pair of shoes. Well, we took our morning exercise by beating the " con " from car to car to reacn Lincoln and, with the poor old Jayhawk who had been kid- napped the night before, the march up O Street started. Perhaps we were in danger of straining a button or two, but we were mighty proud that 9 to had been handed the Jayhawks in a way that made them see the advantages of a weather-beaten skin. The poor old Jay- hawk simply couldn ' t navigate that corn the Cornhuskers handed out, so he gave up the land of the sunHower and migrated to Ne- braska. He died shortly afterwards from over-exertion while trying to plow his es- cape. His funeral was held in the chapel shortly afterward. He was buried in East Minister ' s Abbey.

When the weather ' s getting warmer and the birds begin to sing, And you doff your winter garments and can wear most anything; When the grass begins to perk up and the formal season o ' er, And each class is utter torture and your work a beastly bore. When the girls begin to blossom in their nobby little hats. And you hunt your tennis flannels and sort out your baseball bats; When the folks at home are wondering, " Why on earth that boy don ' t write, " And the simple little reason is — you ' re out most every night. When some instinct stirs within you that you ' d like to be in love, Yet you know you ' re quite unworthy ' cause she is so far above; Don ' t you worry over all those doubts and those forebodings dread, Or that awful tired feeling or that heaviness of head. Or that you are surely worthless and that she is far too good. That you must get out, make money, carve your way, ah, if you could; I repeat — oh, don ' t worry — I will diagnose your " case, " ' Tis a simple springtime fever that just knocks you off your base.

Brother Emley then arose and delivered an oration on the " Millenium That Wasn ' t. " He was cheered roundly. Following this. Brother Bauman read a clear piece of exposition on " The Vacillating Barb Vote. " This was the occasion for a hot debate between Brothers Bryan and Bauman. The two were finally separated and placed in opposite corners by Sergeant-at-Arms Snyder. The rumpus having subsided, the brotherhood arose and sang, " There Ain ' t No Flies On Me. " Thereupon Brother Snyder read a very interesting discussion on " The Chancellor ' s Policy and Mine. " No remarks. Brother Dickinson quickly followed with an able historical paper on the " Decline and Fall of the Old Regime. " Members cautioned to keep same sub rosa. Brother Cutright was then aroused from a deep slumber and gave his part of the pro- gram, consisting of a clear exposition of " Why I Am an Optimist. " Honored Brother Max Towle then addressed the meeting on behalf of himself and Brother Flory, extending a challenge to any two brothers to a game of 1-15 ball. After singing the closing ode, " Lead, Kindly Light, " the meeting adjourned to the base- ment to open a keg of sour grape juice. Cornfiusilter, 1914 403 A SERIO-COMEDY IN ONE ACT.

" ) There was once upon a time a guy called Reed (joke) who thought the great idea would be to hold an elimination bout for fraternity white hopes. Accordingly the grand idea was introduced at the council and the ayes had it. Five men from each frat were chosen and a schedule arranged. Since the statutes of Nebraska prohibited prize fighting these matches were scheduled as " basketball games. " The schedule usually managed it so that the games were played at 6 p. m. and practice was held at 12 a. m. You see the full value of that in training — eat light the " doc " says — huh thinks cause we ' re sons we can eat light — as I was saying there is nothing like inter-frat basketball to keep up an interest in current events. Take for instance the Mexican war — you never saw any Mexican war movie or any- thing that could beat the exhibitions staged in the armory. Someone was stuck in every five minutes and between halves the par- ticipants would cactus on the floor. (Mexi- can local color). Well, they scrapped a while till all were dead or wounded: yes. as I said before, they scrapped a while. Finally one side dis- covered the other had the timekeeper, the scorekeeper, referee and the large end of the score, so they called it " quits " and the rag reporter called off his fussing date to stay home and figure out percentages. Any way we want to know: Why go to Reno when we can see the come-backs in our own armory? As the poet has so fitly said: ?E3lll)rn tfSrrrUs loinrb tfSrrrhB JTIirn Uiao tlir tiiQ of Uiai iTIir laUoiiirb liattlf slural Sub tonnnrst Ulrb.

And saves his pearls, I love him well. (1) ENGLISH HISTORY. The professor enters late; raises or lowers shades; looks at watch. " Deah me! " Adjusts and readjusts his coat, placing his hands in its pockets. " Deah me! Seven minutes late. Beastly hour for having class — nine o ' clock. Nevah can get here on time. Now, let me see! What is our subject this morning? Well, how are your note-books progressing? Ready in a few weeks? Remember you should have had them in time before last. " (Interrupts himself.) " But is this temperature all right for the ladies? " (They nod.) " Very well. Let us continue. " Mr. A. raises hand and asks a question concerning a cartoon he has recently seen. Inter- esting discussion follows. After this Miss B. asks concerning the Benton case and its bearing on the Mexican war, and Mr. C. asks concerning Mrs. Pankhurst. The hour closes with rem- iniscences of English country life from the professor. (2) EDUCATION. The professor, beginning before the bell rings, " Young people, young people, you who are to go out into the world to instruct those in their adolescent period, bear in mind that you must have a purpose in life and must hold to this. Also you should try to be broad- minded. I myself am very broad-minded, as well as religious: yet there are many features of modern life of which I disapprove. For example, dancing, card-playing and moving pic- tures. There is much advice about these which I wish to give you, as well as about various medical matters. Young people, young people, your health is important. (The professor continues talking and keeps the class until ten minutes after the bell has rung.) Note. — We are unable to reproduce all our notes on the lectures of this professor, owing to the necessity of much expurgation. For example, when the lecturer touched upon the biog- raphy of Rousseau and others, on medical matters, or on the dangers of modern life and the temptations of a great city. (3) ENGLISH LITERATURE. The professor enters, carrying a green bag. mounts the platform, fronts the class, and speaks earnestly, with an undulating intonation. Among the subjects he is likely to touch upon are the glory of words, the nobility of leadership, the egoism of knowledge, causes of insanity in patients at the state asylum, and various problems of sex. In the case of this pro- fessor, as with the preceding, we have found much expurgation necessary when taking notes. For example, in the treatment of the last two topics cited above, or when the story of Lance- lot, Elaine and Guinevere, or of Anthony and Cleopatra is under discussion, or when certain chapters of " Richard Feverel " are read. For this reason we quote but little from this recita- tion period, giving only the last words — Professor (concluding) — " Now, for the great moral lesson it contains, and for its exalted transcripts of life, you are to buy and to study earnestly during your next home-reading, ' The Woman Thou Gavest Me, ' by Hall Caine. " The class enters the assignment in their note-books. They do not protest. They have never read " The Woman Thou Gavest Me, " by Mr. Caine, and never intend to. Fortunately " the papers " never get hold of these incidents. Prof. Robbins — " Really, I didn ' t intend to make this examination so easy. " Ammerman (resignedly) — " I have heard that one before, boys; it ' s no use, let ' s go home.

Ah, many is the joyous hour " Ye students " have who venture there. To hear the warblers pour their throats, Or Branson ' s barnyard ' s raucous notes Outflung upon the air! We wander in the long, damp grass. Or through the shrubbery poke; Or watch the others stroll and pass. Or pause beneath some " oak. " Later we gather round a fire. And strive to cook hamburgers there; Sometimes we try the game of ball. Or " Ring Round Rosey " or " Old Dan, " Will keep us happy to a man Until the evening fall.

He had a little " dark horse " for Junior president — But WHY on earth could he lose out with all the votes Bill sent? Miss Graham hated tango, but we couldn ' t see her " side " ; She issued proclamations and tabooed it far and wide. Now Mary comes to dances and we see her round a lot — But WHERE on earth did Mary learn to do the turkey-trot?

Prof. Ba I ' ll g links is tough; lout the campus? key shines enough! UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS. Beware! Beware! Motto — Flunko, failure, faculty, fixum. University professors are a crew of pi- rates, constantly watching for a victim. They have been in existence longer and have done far more damage than the famous pirates of the Mediterranean. But, strange to say, in all the years of their existence they have never been called to account. Nor are their operations considered crim- inal in the eyes of any but the victims, for their operations are protected. They never do their work in the open, for it would never pass inspection were it ex- posed to the public eye. They lie awake nights and plan, then they pick their vic- tims and put the plan into execution. From their position on the bridge they gaze out over the sea of faces in front of them in search of an easy mark. Suddenly a victim appears, and with guns all primed and trained upon the victim ' s water line, they swoop down upon him before he has a chance to prepare his defense. The word is passed along that a victim is in sight, and every pirate in the crew begins to close in on the unsuspecting student. They swarm around him and yell, " Flunko, failure, faculty, fixem! " They have no mercy, no matter who the victim is, unless he has the necessary. Then everything is nice and he has a new host of friends. If the victim doesn ' t have the " pull, " it ' s walk the plank. The salt sea has no bottom, boys, But a sluffer ' s C ' s dam deep. Cornfjugfecr, 1914 415 HEARD AT THE OTHER END OF THE PHONE.

Oh, the sweet remembered glances of her happy, laugh- ing eyes. Makes the pickle taste the sweeter with a charm that never dies.

' Tis love that makes the world go round, And so it ' s always been. For proof just let me quote to you, McHenry, Milliken, Jones, Amerman, and Home and Mills, And Folsom with the twin; And quoted here, the third time now, Else Haarmann and Tym. Ah! In this goodly group, ' tis hard The saddest ones to sift. But give the laurels any day To Toots and Russell Swift. There ' s Rutherford and Tinklepaugh, And Gladys and P. Craig; And Murphy at his Biddy ' s feet. Her favor seeks to beg. There ' s Gen. with any old Sig Chi, Though she prefers her Matt, And William Carrolls every day. And don ' t know where she ' s at. And Russ has got the Clinton cinched, ' Tis a good, old-fashioned case; There ' s Matteson with Speier, too. And Dominy and Chace. But let us pause and breathe a sigh, And watch the favored few. Who ' ve picked life-partners, fond and fast. To them alone are true. To head this list, ' tis hard to do — Take Holland and O ' Brien, And Driscoll and the Kellogg girl. For her he ' s always sighing. And Evans and Neville deserve A crown for loyalty; The Stephens-Harrison affair Still drags on patiently. McDonald and Miss Thomas, too. Have carried out their plans; We hope to see within this year The Lindly-Noble banns. MacAdams runs the Temple boy — Is training him quite well; And what Wayne does by Knight or day. You never can quite tell. ' Tis love that makes the world go round. Again I do declare it; And if you haven ' t found the girl. Be wise, my boy, and dare it. Cornfjusfecr, 1914 423 THE BATTLE OF l.iEDICINE BALL. " And a little child shall lead them, " even so the green-capped Frosh hath led the Soph into bondage. Behold the Cornhusker field covered with a mass of Sophs in armor and brass knuckles, while a few poor Frosh in the overalls they had brought from down home and wearing the tennis shoes the landlady ' s son lent them, mingled together on one corner. Behold, even as I write, they mix — a dust arises, considerable dust — some one shoots. Aha! They are off and at it. Out from the dust and high into the air, dismembered arms, legs, feet and pants buttons are thrown. A whistle sounds. It is all over. The Sophs win the battle of Medicine Ball. THE BOXER WAR. Night has come. How do we know? Do we not hear a Soph exclaim, " Ah. but I saw stars! " Such was the boxing match. The wrestlers take the mat, the Soph " waded " into the Frosh and that was soon over. Fate was cruel and victory hung in the balance. The free-for-all was to be a deciding factor. HAND-TO-HAND CONFLICT. " The big fight. " To speak in the Medic stude ' s way — the Frosh cut out their men and dissected them from the bunch and pinned them down on Frosh men ' s soil. Only six minutes were needed for the opera- tion — by that time all Sophs were either pinned down or looking for Frosh shoes. HOSTILITIES CEASE— REJOICING IN FROSH CAMP. A snake dance down Tenth to O and up O. Then the Frosh went back to his corned beef and cabbage with a happy heart from paying homage to old King Olympus. THE OLYMPICS IN BRIEF. Olympic day, Fair play; Broken nose. Minus clothes. Co-eds turn. Cheeks burn; No shame. Class fame. AN INTERVIEW WITH OUR BUD- DING AMBASSADOR. JOHN CUTRIGHT— " Say, old boy, I ' ve got a peach of a story for you. Remember last year when I was trying to get the new dances started? Well, I said then that the time would come when the tango and Bos- ton would take the place of the waltz and two-step. Everybody laughed at me then, but look at me now! If I were that kind, I ' d say, ' I told you so! ' But, of course, be- ing a modest young man — Say, goin ' to the matinee dance Saturday? I ' ve just got one ticket left, and I ' ll let you have it if you hurry. All the latest steps taught by Prof. Chambers. All right, thanks, and if any more around your house want tickets, just send ' em around to me. Gee, these little darbs ' round here sure get me fussed, kid- do. " DONTS FOR FRESHMEN. DON ' T do your fussing in the library, the librarian might get jealous. Besides the Regents have placed benches on the campus for that purpose. DON ' T try to enter your frat house noise- lessly after 3 a. m. You might be mistaken for a burglar and shot. DON ' T expect enforcement of house rules regarding music and loud talking after 8 o ' clock. This is a delightful fallacy. DON ' T take pains to keep your drill suit immaculate. You ought to see it in five or six years from now. DON ' T habitually tell the profs how hard you are working and how much you enjoy their course. Save this line of talk for the week before the mid-semesters. DON ' T worry if it takes three or four days to register. The system was orig- inated expressly to develop your latent pow- ers of endurance. DON ' T be impatient if Prof. Aylsworth detains you five or ten minutes after the hour bell rings and makes you late to your next class. You must remember that his department is the only one of importance (?) in the University. 424 ConiliiisUn. 1014 OLYnPICs Listen, my children, and you shall hear, Of a sunny day in September clear; Soon after schedules and rushing was done. When the school year ' s turmoil had just begun, I can hardly look back without a tear — ' Twas an annual fight between Soph and Frosh; And they claimed they could lick us good, by gosh, Like few green youngsters with fear in our hearts. And mighty small knowledge of pugilist arts; But we set out to win and held to the last; Broke down their line and got after them fast. We treated them gently, but they wilted like flowers, And fell back to defeat before that on- slaught of ours. In fact, in the rush to a safe, sound retreat. It is said some few Sophs lost the shoes off their feet. And if you don ' t think that I ' m giving it straight. Just look at these two bemoaning their fate. Please notice that they are minus some clothes. And judge of the outcome when Freshmen meet foes. Cornfjusbrr, 1014 425 PAN-HEL BANQUET There always arises one bright spot in the Freshman ' s year that compensates the pad- dlings and the snow-off-the-front-walk-with- a-spoon duties. The time comes when his elder " brothers " say unto him: " For one dollar you shall be docked and no supper served at the house, " and the Frosh d ecides to take a look-in at the big eats. Of course with his chosen band he trots down the street to the window where he finds assembled everybody he never met and each one behind the pin of his frater- nity and some time later finds himself drawn into the dining room where the long rows of tables terminate into the palms which protect the orchestra. After wander- ing around everybody sits down suddenly and the poor Frosh rushes for the nearest empty seat to find himself with the same bunch whose bull dog he helped swipe. This is entertaining — for them. The orchestra strikes up a tune and the long line of waiters — trays balanced, feet fhuffling in time — come hastening in. Some- body starts to keep time by pounding his glass and soon " O-O-Delphine " has it all over the original " Chimes in Normandy. " Hush! Bill Ritchie climbs onto a chair and loudly claims all rain checks so that the percentage for the pups can be figured up. Bill looked like a real important man until somebody delivered a sugar lump in his ear. and the rain check plea automatic- ally ceased. Tlic Three Coata More music, more eats, more shuffling. One waiter seems to outdo the rest, for when the " Has Anybody Here Seen Rover? " whistling part came in he took a jump with each whistle. Some say he was trying a new tango, any way you ought to have seen the tan-go. Ow! Just take it from " yours personally " that toastmaster, known as Dr. Barbour, was right on the job, a full low-cut (13 cents at the Globe), and when Cornell gave his little ditty we knew that we were getting over the coffee and cigars Si. Of course the subject of " Some Bull Dog " gave McKelvie a good send-off with his " puttin ' on dog. " McKelvie proved an excellent tango judge and interested the bunch with his " high life in Washington, " or " Button, button: who possesses the elusive piece of ivory? " You all know the old saying of " the tables groaned under the weight of good things. " by which you may guess the Chancellor spoke of the days gone by. Garrett gave an excellent imitation of Mark Anthony ' s fu- neral oration, while Johnny Ledwith ended up with his usual " Well, I ' ll Be Doggoned! " Of course we can ' t forget that most excel- lent humorist, Dr. Maxey. No. we ' re not going to print that speech verbatim. Far .f they ; ME John Hopkii from such. (If you want it we refer you to back numbers of Life, the Philistine, Jim Jam Jems and Awgwan.) Finally the bloom- ing dogs gave their duet and the big stunt was over except the collection of napkins from the chandeliers. Pan-Hel, the Chancellor says, is gone. Yes, it ' s gone, but not forgotten; but, oh, compared with Spharo Styx, you ' ll agree it wasn ' t quite so rotten. It ' s some of our old friend, the Journal ' s work as usual. Some of these days that sheet will get hold of a real scandal — you know — " Some Villain Swipes the Door Knob Off Carl ' s Office Door. " " All Uni Students Urged to Form Posses to Search For the Culprit and There Will be Great Doin ' s. " But let ' s close with a toast. Good old Pan-Hel.

And he said, " Just wait and see! " But you bet I know what " Cons " are now. For they hung a " con " on me. Chorus — Oh. they hung a " con " on me. Yes, they got my goat, you see; Can ' t play football or fuss with the ladies. And it makes me as grouchy as Hades. I ' m as crabby as can be.

Time — Early in the second semester be- fore the election of Junior Class president. How can we expect to purify American politics when such corrupt bargaining and giving of bribes is rampant even in our high institution of learning? By painstaking in- vestigation I have unearthed one of the most subtle and heinous political crimes ever palmed off on the unsuspecting public. I refer to nothing less than the election of Stewart to the Junior Class presidency. This might well go down in history as the crime of 1913. Let me give you the details of this foul plot whereby the students were handed a mess of pottage for their birth- right. Stewart and Bauman were running neck and neck for the office, which is the greatest honor your class can confer upon you, when suddenly Bauman, after a confer- ence with one of Stewart ' s adherents, an- nounced that he was forced to quit the race because of excessive work. Thus Stewart had no opposition. Now comes in the part which makes honest men gasp in horror, for Stewart appointed Bauman to the lucra- tive position of chairman of the Junior Prom, which takes much more work than the presidency itself. Do you see the in- consistency of Mr. Bauman displayed in his acceptance? Nor did this end the wretched business, for in the second semester Bauman again announced himself a candidate for president and Stewart comes out to his sup- port. Could anything be more underhanded and dastardly? But I Hatter myself that I have reached the bottom of this affair re- gardless of how well concealed they imag- ined it to be. Gentlemen, I repeat, how can we purge American politics of its evils as long as such vice is fostered in our Uni- versity? 438 Cornfiufllirr, 1014 DRILL, YOU DEVILS, DRILL!

" I looked up to see who could be the fear- less personage addressing the mightiest, most awe-inspiring man in this University, as he passed through the hall to his office. It was a little, bright-eyed, freckle-faced boy who stood there, serene and smiling in his messenger ' s uniform, with his head poised (serene), securely confident in his power to make friends. Even the mighty perfonage condescended to bestow a smile on the boy and to reply, " Yes, indeed, my boy; we are proud of the old school. " " Golly, " answered the boy, " when I seed that end run, I just could hardly wait till I bad that football and was beating it myself. " Just then a door opened and someone called, " Here, kid, skip this over to Profes- sor Ming, " and off he went, whistling a brave tune to the balmy air.

And Manker ' s sly, sweet coil : And Atwood ' s bumps at rear to view. With bangs in front, afoil. And Helen wears a rampant bow. That dazzles with its height: While Fannie curls and curls in vain.

A cop descends as an angel from heaven, bumping the bumps on each gallery step. Bump, and up goes the guilty wretch ' s heart in his throat who dares to raise his voice in maudlin glee. But hold! Justice is blind. Even as the guilty ones cowered and shivered, the hand of the law descended on two of our most prominent, enterprising, influential Y. M. C.

The coop fiend is the fellow who bolts his supper, grabs his hat and at six-thirty is clinging to the handle of the door beneath the dingy electric sign, " Gallery. " His ar- tistic temperament is not even ruffled when 200 or more other fiends crush him against the rickety door, breaking his watch crystal and fountain pen, to say nothing of damag- ing a perfectly good shine beyond all pos- sible recognition. When the door opens he does a Marathon up the corkscrew stairs and implants himself, breathless but tri- umphant, next to the foot-scarred rail. Others follow close upon his heels, ensconce themselves upon the luxurious upholstery (?), then sigh contentedly as after a job well done. The fiend now pays homage to his friends, one by one, as they enter the pit. Why shouldn ' t he greet his frat brother who is sitting in the front row? Why shouldn ' t he say " Hell-o " to his girl, even if she is there with " the other fellow " ? Ten to one she doesn ' t care; she probably is secretly glad to receive this indication of his admiration and respect. She is not even fazed when some veteran friend clearly throws a paper dart against her shapely shoulder. Fickle man! For after the first curtain he transfers his affections to the girls be- hind the footlights. What matter if the parquet highbrows look up and frown haughtily, when he calls to the bewitching blonde in the first row? Is it not one ' s sacred privilege to recognize his friends? Gaby did not mind; why should others? Why should anyone object if the coop fiends wish to harmonize their exquisite voices in a little ditty concerning the ani- mals at the " Hamburg Show, " or to indi- cate their indifference as to what the future will produce? Truly the coop fiend is mon- arch of all he surveys, so why should he be restricted in the execution of his sovereign and inalienable rights? " Frinch? Indade, an ' shure I be. " — Ed Hugg. " And ' tis remarkable that they talk the most who have the least to say. " — Dr. Maxey. RUSS " -AFTER BUSINESS HOURS HEAVY STUFF. Scene — Giantanic, upper deck. Time — Second day out.

The tuition charge at this school totals One Hundred and Fifty Dollars ($150.00) for each year as against those who charge a less tuition and those with fees aggregating as high as $250.00 a session. It would be possible to conduct a dental college with a tuition of $25.00 a year, but that school could give only a very few hours a month in a very limited number of subjects and the school could not afford all time teachers. At Lincoln there are twenty teachers, of whom seven are all time men. These twenty teachers draw a salary for this session of more than nineteen Thousand Dollars. The equipment used by the teachers cost the college and the University over One Hundred and Sixty Thousand Dollars and occupies a floor space of over twenty-three thousand square feet and is divided into twenty-one rooms, occupying a part of four different buildings. Here are the subjects with the number of hours for the course of three years which we deliver to each student for the tuition he pays : Hours Operative Dentistry and Technic 764 Prosthetic Dentistry and Technic 832 Orthodontia (Lectures) 64 Pathology, Dental and General 96 Surgery, Oral and General, with anaesthetics 124 Oral Hygiene (Lectures) 32 Histology, General and Dental 144 Radography 60 Materia Medica, Pharmacology and Therapeutics 96 Chemistry 368 Dental Anatomy 256 General Anatomy 256 Physiology 256 Bacteriology 128 Infirmary practice covering all branches 1,132 Or a total of 4,608 hours for three sessions of 32 weeks each, teaching eight hours a day. If the dental profession desired less hours and subject matter covered by the course they would cease to recommend this school which is delivering the work above outlined.

I really make candy, and I have a lot of good candy makers helping me. But they make it the way I tell them to make it. That ' s why I have to make so much of it — it is made right. I scour the world for the best possible materials to put into my candy. The best chocolate producers and the best sugar refiners know me as a steady customer just as long as they produce the best. My success has been built upon the " repeating customer, " the customer who comes again and again because he or she appreciates the best in the candy line. They not only come back for more, but they tell their friends. I know what my candy is, and I want you to know it. Vhen jou do, you will be a " repeating customer. " Today I am shipping my candies to practically e ery state and terri- tory — actually selling it in New York City and Chicago. Suppose you try some of my candy. Send me any amount of money, from thirty cents to three dollars and tell me to send you some of my product. I ' ll send you your money ' s worth both in quality and quantit — send it by parcel post prepaid. If you do, I know you ' ll send for more. I make it that way — like more.

O. B. LINCOLN VJ HE new Weidely motor, in addition to being a valve-in-the-head type with M f overhead cam shaft, incorporates not a few other interesting details. (_, ■ I ° ' which point toward the simplification of the parts and the elimination of J unnecessary fittings. flAll valves are in the head without cages and are fc operated by a single cam shaft located directly above them. This cam shaft is driven from the crank shaft by a vertical shaft through worm-gear spirals at right angles, and the whole mechanism — shafting, gears, cam shaft and valves — is completely enclosed and copiously lubricated. The six cylinders are cast in en-block together with the entire crank case. lThe cylinder head is another unit, and carries all the valves and the cam shaft and intake pipe, while covering it is a cap that makes an oil-tight housing for the valve mechanism. •]! Even the water pipes have been elimi- nated, the radiator being bolted to the motor itself without rubber connections. flAt the Chicago and New York show this new Premier attracteii mure attention and favorable comment than any of the dozen cars there. iW i -i i Lord Auto Co., Distributors Commercial Club Building :: Lincoln, Nebraska iiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiuniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiuiiniiimiiiuiiiuiiniiHiiiiiiuiiiHiiiniiiniuuiiiiinimniHiraiiiiiininmuiiiiiimiiiuMiiiiiiininiiiinim iinin ■»■« Cornf)U0hrr, 1014 □ m I 1 1 i Harry Porter — Tbe Stationer | who sells all supplies used by | I university students. | 3 icf)ter ©r atoing Snsitruments I First quality; imported direct. | I Students in botany, zoology, anatomy and I every department can buy here and be sure f I of quality and price being right. j I Waterman Ideal Fountain Pens. | I Largest assortment of nibs in the city. | I A trial is all I ask! | I He sells the Foot Rail tickets j I 1 1 23 O Street, Yellow Front | SillllOIIIIIIIIIIII»IIIIIIMIMIIIIIIII»IIIMIIIIIIMIIIIIIMIIIIIIIII»llllll»l»lllllllnlllllllllMIIIIMHMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIUniinillllllMllllllnllinilllMllllllllllllllllin IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIJ h R poririfiiiriiififwiii Lincoln ' s Leading Department Store Quarter of a Century in Lincoln iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiin Cornfjugfecr, 19H 479 Purity and Goodness You have been tryinc; this liutter ami that, but you are not quite satisfied.
